Following the recent reorganization of the Fortune Group, changes at AOL Time Warner's Time Inc. unit look likely to happen next within its People Group, as responsibilities continue to shift from Time Life Inc. CEO Jim Nelson.
People Group President Ann Moore--named by some insiders as a potential successor to Time Inc. CEO Don Logan--is likely to assume oversight of American Express Publishing, in addition to the responsibilities she just added overseeing the Parenting Group and Sesame Street magazine. Nora McAniff, president of People magazine, is expected to assume additional duties within the People Group in response. American Express currently reports to Mr. Nelson, who is based in Alexandria, Va. Mr. Nelson, who also holds an exec VP title at Time Inc., also held the title of President and CEO of Time Publishing Ventures.
This Old House and the Parenting Group ceased reporting to Mr. Nelson in recent weeks, the former ending up within the Time Mirror Magazines unit. "We have nothing to say," said a People spokeswoman. "It's not happening now." A Time Inc. spokesman declined comment for the company and for Mr. Nelson.
On Feb. 13 AOL Time Warner announced a restructuring of its Fortune Group of business titles, in which all managing editors--the top editorial title at Time Inc. magazines--report to Fortune Editor John Huey, and all publishers report to Fortune President Jack Haire.
