After Massive Layoffs, Martha Stewart Names a New Ad Sales Chief
After swinging the ax on about 75 employees Thursday — several of them top executives in the advertising group — Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia has promoted Amy Wilkins to head of advertising, sales and marketing, the company said Friday.
Ms. Wilkins, the publisher of Martha Stewart Weddings, becomes the top ad sales executive at the company.
She assumes responsibilities that had been handled by Chief Revenue Officer Joseph Lagani, who left amid yesterday’s cuts, according to a person familiar with the layoffs. Peter Medwid, the publisher of flagship publication Martha Stewart Living, has also left the company, this person said. No successor has been named yet.
