LONDON -- Conde Nast Publications has appointed Susan Douglas to the new role of president of new business with responsibility for Internet projects and contract publishing.

Conde Nast's Web projects were previously handled by Director of New Media William Miller, who has returned to the TV industry in an unspecified role.

Ms. Douglas, whose journalistic experience includes stints as editor of the Sunday Express, deputy editor of the Sunday Times, and international editor of Gear magazine in New York, has been working with Conde Nast for the last 18 months on a part-time consultancy business.

"I am delighted that Susan has agreed to join Conde Nast in a senior capacity and in addition to running Contract and Internet," Managing Director Nicholas Coleridge said. "She will also work closely with me, helping to develop new magazine concepts and ideas."

Conde Nast's Internet page impressions have doubled in the last six months to reach 7 million a month while advertising revenue grew by 68% last year. Conde Nast in the U.K. runs four major magazine-related Web sites. -- Ali Qassim
