Douglas joins Conde

Former Sunday Express editor Sue Douglas is to head up the contract and internet divisions at Condé Nast in the newly created role of president of new business.

From June 1, she will work on a full-time basis for the publisher, following 18 months working as a consultant at the company.

Douglas played a key role in the launch of Glamour and part of her new brief will be the development of the online version of the magazine.

CondeNet, the online division of Condé Nast currently runs four magazine websites, including Vogue.com, one of the few online properties to make money from ad sales.

Ad revenue across the entire online division increased by 68% during 2000.

The publisher refused to comment on whether Douglas would be working on a UK version of Teen Vogue, which was recently launched in the US.

Speaking of her new position she said: "It's a tremendous challenge - embracing two of the most precarious areas of any publishing venture. But both online and contract publishing within Condé Nast have bucked the global trend of decline and showed enormous promise. That promise is entirely due to some of the best and most
creative journalists in Britain. I will enjoy every second of working with them."

As well as her editorship of the Sunday Express, Sue's publishing background includes time spent as executive editor at Sunday Business, The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday.
