Tribune Publishing of Chicago named Tim Landon president of Tribune Interactive and Classifieds, a new division that combines online and classified advertising into one unit. Landon was previously president of the classifieds group.
Brigid Kenney, chief financial officer and vice president/operations of the interactive group, will expand her role and become general manager of the new division.
Tribune Publishing Senior Vice President David Hiller said combining Interactive and Classifieds under one roof will make the company “even more effective in serving our customers with great cross-media solutions.”
Landon became president of the classified group in June 2000, and was instrumental in Tribune’s investments with CareerBuilder.com and Classified Ventures, according to the company. He previously served as vice president for strategy and development at Tribune Publishing and acting CEO of Classified Ventures. Landon began his Tribune career as a classified representative in 1986 at the Chicago Tribune.
Kenney joined Tribune in 1993 as manager of accounting and external reporting. She held several positions before being named chief financial officer for the interactive group in 1999, with the additional title of vice president/operations in 2002.
