Condé Nast Britain appoints COO

Condé Nast Britain, the publisher of Vanity Fair, Wired and Vogue, has appointed Sabine Vandenbroucke to the newly created role of chief operating officer.

Vandenbroucke will report to the new managing director Albert Read, who took over from Nicholas Coleridge earlier this month, and her remit includes direct oversight of finance, legal, IT, production, property and editorial business.

“Vandenbroucke has extensive experience in shaping and implementing strategy in a transformational media environment in addition to day to day management across diverse business operations," said Read.

"With this appointment Condé Nast Britain is well placed to drive extensive and sustainable growth, also ensuring the greatest efficiencies."

Currently Winkorp’s chief financial officer, the parent company of Monocle and Winkreative, Vandenbroucke studied business engineering and philosophy before completing her MBA at INSEAD.

A Belgian native who speaks four languages, she joined Winkreative in 2005 as CFO, assuming a position on the company’s board a few years later.

Today Vandenbroucke is also in charge of investor relations and acquisitions, as well as serving as chief of operations for the company’s publishing arm, which she helped to establish.

Vandenbroucke currently splits her time between Winkreative’s head office in Zürich and its London office and creative studio at Midori House in Marylebone.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Condé Nast, a publisher I’ve long admired, with its authoritative, exciting and entertaining media brands, and I’m looking forward to playing a key part in driving the business forward," said Vandenbroucke.

"It’s a dynamic climate and one in which Condé Nast is strategically positioning itself to maximise growth potential.”

The appointment follows the recent news that Simon Gresham Jones joins Condé Nast as chief digital officer in September.

Vandenbroucke will take up her new position on 25 September.

Next week Mediatel will publish an in-depth interview with Albert Read on his plans for the publisher.
