Digiday Media is excited to welcome its first senior vice president of sales and client engagement.
Drew Schutte, the former chief revenue officer of Condé Nast Digital, and publisher of Wired, The New Yorker and Details, is joining Digiday Media to drive sales and client engagement for the company’s three media brands (Digiday, Glossy, Tearsheet) and content agency Custom. He will work alongside and report to chief client & revenue officer, Paul Borselli.
“Drew is a proven business leader who will help continue Digiday Media’s rapid expansion,” said Nick Friese, founder and CEO of Digiday Media.
The hire comes at a time when Digiday Media has become the go-to source for creating content, services and community that foster change in media and marketing. Digiday has expanded significantly the last few years, and new brands Glossy and Tearsheet take the winning formula to the fashion and financial industries, respectively.
“The digital impact on industries continues to accelerate remarkably fast, and Digiday Media has become the leading resource for information and connecting key players to move their business forward,” Schutte said. “Digiday Media has all of the necessary ingredients to extend this success across an increasing number of industries.”
“Drew’s unique combination of expertise at driving digital, event, and branded content revenue will be invaluable as we continue to diversify our revenue streams,” said Borselli. “Digiday Media has aggressive growth plans and Drew’s proven ability to drive revenue through solutions based partnerships will position us well to accomplish those goals.”
Digiday Media now has over 70 employees with offices in New York and London, and a joint venture in Japan.
