Published June 8, 2010
Sports Illustrated has named former Self magazine VP & Publisher KIM KELLEHER as its new VP/Global Sales, making her the first woman to hold the top advertising sales job in the magazine's nearly 56-year history. Kelleher achieved major gains in ad pages and revenue during her six years at Self, and in '08 was named Conde Nast's publisher of the year. "This is a really incredible opportunity," Kelleher said. "You're talking about one of the largest brands in sports, and the chance to work with a fantastic editor in TERRY MCDONELL. And SI is really set up to be at the forefront of where this business is going, both in print and digitally. We're perfectly positioned to have huge presence on all the new platforms coming to market and achieve very significant scale."
