"Nancy has done a tremendous job at Allure," said Charles H. Townsend, president-CEO of Conde Nast, in a statement regarding today's changes. "She started her career at Goumet and we are pleased to have her return to the magazine she has a special passion for."

Ad pages at Allure increased 1.6% through the April issue, according to the Media Industry Newsletter.

Tom Hartman, who has been VP-publisher of Gourmet just since March 2007, was named VP-corporate sales in the Conde Nast Media Group, where he will report to Lou Cona, the group's No. 2 to Richard Beckman.

At Allure, Agnes Chapski was named the new VP-publisher. Ms. Chapski, who is joining the ranks of Conde publishers for the first time, had been associate publisher at Vanity Fair. She had previously been associate publisher at Lucky and, before Conde, was group VP for women's titles at Weider Publications.
