Lifetime Shifts PR, Research to West Coast

Sep 9, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Lifetime CEO Andrea Wong is moving the company’s public relations, public affairs and most of its research department from its headquarters in New York to Los Angeles, effective Jan. 1.
Management has asked affected staffers to make the move west where appropriate. About 20 people are affected.
Among those making the moves are Meredith Wagner, who heads up public relations and public affairs, and Mike Greco, who joined the company last year to head the research department.
Lifetime already has shifted most of its promotions staff to the West Coast. Remaining in New York are finance, advertising sales, digital and the research staff that supports ad sales.
In an internal memo, Ms. Wong, who joined Lifetime last year, said the move “will unite various departments and functions in Los Angeles in order to build a stronger and more vibrant organization.”
Ms. Wong added: “While I feel confident that these moves are critical to the company’s growth and continued success, I know they will also be very difficult for many of the impacted employees and their families, and I am appreciative in advance of their support for this decision and the grace and passion they have always demonstrated at Lifetime Networks.”
