Conde Nast Entertainment has named a successor to Dawn Ostroff, who exited her post as president of Conde Nast in July to become chief content officer at Spotify. The New York Post reports that Conde Nast named Oren Katzeff to the post.

Katzeff was most recently with digital video publisher Tastemade.

The Post notes that Ostroff “started the division for the publishing giant seven years ago as a way to diversify the publisher of Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ and The New Yorker away from its traditional print base, which was losing ad pages to digital.”

After joining Spotify, The Post reports, Ostroff “then turned around and raided Conde Nast to hire her No. 2, Sahar Elhabashi, who had been elevated to the interim head of CNE after Ostroff left. Elhabashi was named VP of the content business for Spotify in October.”

The report adds: “At Tastemade, Katzeff launched a 24/7 channel on YouTubeTV, introduced seven original series on Facebook Watch and its first feature-length documentary, ‘Funkie.’”

Conde Nast said Katzeff will lead the “CNE team through its next phase of digital video growth and oversee the division’s burgeoning film and television production slate.”
