Time Inc. said Tuesday it has hired a veteran publishing executive, Don Logan, now president and chief executive of Southern Progress Corp., to be its No. 2 manager, overseeing the company's New York-based magazine division.
At the same time, Time announced the resignation of S. Christopher Meigher III, president of the division. Time said Meigher was resigning to pursue other interests after 22 years with the company.
Logan, 48, becomes president and chief operating officer of Time, reporting to Reginald K. Brack Jr., the company's chairman and chief executive. Brack previously held the title of president, while chief operating officer is a new post, a Time spokesman said.
Logan will concentrate on Time's New York-based magazines, which include Time, Fortune, Life, Sports Illustrated, Money, People, Sports Illustrated for Kids and Entertainment Weekly.
Southern Progress Corp., based in Birmingham, Ala., publishes Southern Living, Progressive Farmer, Cooking Light, Southern Accent and Travel South magazines, as well as Oxmoor House books.
Southern Progress had no immediate plans to name a successor to Logan, a spokeswoman said.
