Jed Hartman, The Washington Post’s top advertising executive, has left the company after nearly four years, reports The Post, which added that “The Post did not offer a reason for Hartman’s departure, which colleagues said was unexpected. “We don’t comment on personnel matters,” said Kristine Coratti Kelly, a company spokeswoman.
“Hartman, who is listed as a vice president on The Post’s masthead, didn’t return phone calls and emails seeking comment.
“As chief revenue officer of The Post since late 2014, Hartman was responsible for print and digital advertising sales.
“He was previously group publisher at Time Inc., overseeing advertising, marketing and event sales for Time, Fortune and Money magazines. Media Industry News named him its publisher of the year in 2014.
“Hartman was named last year to Adweek magazine’s annual list of 50 top marketing, media and technology executives.”
