Condé Nast has named John Deschner managing director of Condé’s new CNX group, the area that will now oversee all advertising and branding work for outside clients. John spent nearly all of his career working in advertising, most recently as chief innovation officer and managing director at TBWA/Chiat/Day LA, where he oversaw the growth of their content and digital capabilities, and worked with clients ranging from QuickBooks and Airbnb to the Grammys.

“John is an innovative leader in the industry and has extensive experience building and expanding content and digital businesses at some of the most successful agencies in the industry,” said Pamela Drucker Mann, chief revenue and marketing officer of Condé Nast, to whom he will report. “Pairing John’s expertise with the new global network of editorial talent and influence available through CNX, immediately puts Condé Nast at the forefront of the creative agency business.”

Congratulations, John!
