Does Laura Lang’s Appointment Signal The End For America’s Best-Loved Publications?

Laura Lang

What do you get when you put the head of a successful global digital advertising agency at the helm of one of America’s most traditional print publishers? We’re not sure either, but Time Inc. is going to find out following the appointment of former Digitas CEO Laura Lang. As the Dot Com revolution continues apace, can some of the country’s best loved magazines and newspapers survive a straight-talking CEO who’s famed for turning round the fortunes of a run-of-the-mill direct-mail firm and turning it into an uber-successful digital brand agency? Time Inc. Where Were They And Where Are They Now In the five years leading up to the appointment of Lang, Time Inc. had not enjoyed much success. Overall revenue had fallen by 30% since 2007 and in the three months leading up to March this year the company’s adjusted operating income had fallen by 38%, driven by a 19% drop in advertising revenue. Former CEO Jack Griffin was shown the door after just six months in post; a remedy was needed and the senior execs and shareholders clearly felt Lang was it. However Time Inc’s 9,000 employees had questions, and whether print was dead was top of the list….

Will There Ever Be An End To Zynga’s Woes?


Oh dear… It seems Zynga’s bad day on July 25 looks set to become a bad month. After posting earnings that show a drop of three cents per share, they are now wrestling with an array of lawsuits for copyright infringement and insider trading. The social games start-up is currently mid-wrangle with EA over certain similarities between its game The Social Sims and Zynga’s The Ville, and now San Francisco lawyers Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check have waded in to join the party after filing a suit on behalf of investors stating that the company allowed key execs to sell shares up to three months before other employees, and that lawsuit is not the only one. Copying the works of other companies and insider dealing all leave a bit of a bad taste in the mouth. As a result is Zynga now in meltdown? A Bright Start The company produces browser-based games available as standalones on mobile platforms and as widgets on social networks including Facebook and Google+. It currently has 3000 employees, over 300million monthly active users and 72million daily active users and posted revenue of $1.16billion in 2011. Zynga was founded in 2007 and it’s first game, Texas…

Starcom MediaVest – The Agency Set For Global Domination

Starcom MediaVest

What do you do if you’re a global corporation that has hundreds of millions of dollars to spend on your ad strategy and you want to get the biggest bang for your buck? Well if you’re Microsoft, Yahoo, Burger King, Disney or Coca Cola – you go to Starcom MediaVest, the media agency that will ensure that your marketing budget is stretched as far as possible. Starcom Media Who? Starcom MediaVest is part of the Publicis Groupe with its headquarters in Chicago. It currently employs 6,000 people in over 100 offices located in 68 countries across the globe, and in 2011 it was the World’s number one media agency, with recorded billings of just over $34billion. Sixty one per cent of that business originated in the US, 10% in Asia Pacific and 29% in EMEA countries. The company was formed twelve years ago from the media divisions of Leo Burnett and D’Arcy and it still operates under the separate names of Starcom and MediaVest in some markets. Currently the organisation sits in the Publicis Groupe, alongside partner ZenithOptimedia. Starcom MediaVest’s operations are currently strongest in North America, with slightly lower ranking in other markets – Europe in particular. In both…

Looking For A Media Job? Thomson Reuters Might Just Be The Place to Be…

Thomson Reuters

Those looking for work in business data and news could be forgiven for thinking that the market is in the doldrums, but it seems old faithful Thomson Reuters might just be bucking the trend as it records healthy revenue growth this second quarter. The Manhattan firm with global reach announced recently that revenue generated by ongoing business grew by three per cent to $3.2billion between April and June – entirely in line with expectations. However the big news is that where other corporations are stalling, Thomson Reuters have recorded a 64% increase in profits taking the total to a nice rounded $935million – up from $572million 12 months ago following the sale of its healthcare business to Veritas. Thomson Reuters’ companies include financial businesses Thomson Reuters Eikon and Thomson Reuters Elektron, Reuters News Agency, intelligence firm Cortellis, tax and accounting tools OneSource and Checkpoint and a range of  healthcare solutions including Thomson Reuters Marketscan Treatment Pathways, Thomson Reuters Healthcare Indexes and the Micromedex Drug Interactions App. The Figures Speak For Themselves Adjusted earnings stood at 54 cents per share compared with 51 cents for the same period in 2011, four cents clear of analysts’ predictions of 50 cents, although revenue…

What’s Next For Ross?

Ross Levinsohn

Things never stay still in the hurly-burly that is digital media, and just this week Yahoo announced that interim CEO Ross Levinsohn is set to walk following the appointment of Google’s Marissa Mayer. This is the second time he has been passed over for the top job. Following the sacking of Scott Thompson, now firmly ensconced at shopping network Shoprunner, Levinsohn was asked to step into the breech and oversee content creation, engineering and strategy. He led advertising sales and content, he also won praise for brokering partnerships with Clear Channel, Spotify and, most importantly, Facebook. Levinsohn also managed a deal with Chinese e-commerce firm Ali Baba Group Holding that would see the company buy  back a stake in itself and earn Yahoo $6.3 billion in cash and up to $800 million in preferred stock. Taking all of the above into account, it seems likely he will not be left on the shelf for long. However, in the ever-more incestuous world of the search engine, where CEOs and execs seem to skip effortlessly between the giants, what does this latest move actually mean for the sector and where might Levinsohn end up? Struggling Search Engines Yahoo will undoubtedly now be…
