Bustle Digital Group (BDG) — the company founded by Bleacher Report co-founder Bryan Goldberg that runs brands like Bustle.com, Elite Daily, Mic.com, Romper, and The Zoe Report — has hired Elizabeth Webbe Lunny as executive vice president of revenue, according to AdWeek. Lunny is joining BDG from The New York Times where she worked as the Vice President of Media and publisher of T Magazine.
Before The New York Times, Lunny also worked at Rodale as the head of digital & integrated sales and at Three Lions Entertainment as the VP of Sales & Marketing. Prior to that experience, she worked in various roles at Conde Nast for 12 years. Lunny is going to report to BDG chief revenue officer Jason Wagenheim upon starting the job on September 30.
“BDG has established itself as a leader in the millennial digital space across a broad spectrum of consumer passion points,” said Lunny in a statement. “Jason and his team have achieved substantial revenue growth and scale, which is remarkable given the current marketplace conditions. It’s an exciting time to join BDG as we look to the next chapter.”
Lunny is going to be responsible for driving revenue at BDG and work with the sales team on a day-to-day basis. And Wagenheim is going to work on developing new revenue streams such as acquisitions.
“As we continue to grow and expand our portfolio and product offerings, we’re excited to bring in more senior sales leadership talent,” added Wagenheim. “We’ve grown from a $25 million business in 2016 to $100 million this year, and given our recent acquisitions and the strong performance by our core sites, we expect even more extraordinary growth in 2020.”
