After announcing the departure of Xavier Romatet last week, Jonathan Newhouse, the President and CEO of Condé Nast International, unveiled the name of the new head of Condé Nast France. The publishing group (Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Glamour) has chosen to entrust its subsidiary to the man who developed Elle in Asia.
The graduate of Sciences Po and Dauphine, who lived in Japan since 1990 and finished his studies there, will now be a key player in French media.
« Yves has deep experience and a track record of success in directing the evolution of a business from print to a modern, digital and multi-platform organization » said Jonathan Newhouse in a statement on March 22. « He has that rare profile of understanding the luxury market, the companies in that space and their culture as well an innate understanding of some of the industry’s most important growth markets and how to tap into them ».
Yves Bougon will officially take office on May 7.
