NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- In a major shuffling of its publishers, Time Inc. elevated the publisher of Sports Illustrated to a corporate sales role and created a new group of titles dubbed the Growth Markets Group.

Fabio Freyre, 42, Sports Illustrated publisher, becomes group vice president for corporate sales and marketing. He will be replaced by Dave Morris, 43, publisher of Entertainment Weekly. Mr. Morris is succeeded by Paul Caine, 39, publisher of Teen People.

Overseeing the Growth Markets Group, which includes Teen People, People en Espanol, Time for Kids and Sports Illustrated for Kids, is Cathy O'Brien, 44, currently vice president and general manager of Entertainment Weekly. She will now act as group publisher for the four titles.

Time Inc. Chairman-CEO Ann Moore, who just completed her first year on the job this July and recently posted disappointing results for the third quarter, said in a statement: "What distinguishes Time Inc. from its competitors is the diversity of its titles and the depth of its talent. This advantage enables us to consistently have the right resources in the right places at the right times to ensure the company's continued growth."

Mr. Freyre, 42, will oversee the corporate sales force, working with Time Inc.'s largest advertisers, as well as develop a men's network initiative that will include Time4 Media titles and the business magazines.
