Conde Nast Names New CFO And CMO To Oversee Global Operations

Conde Nast has hired a new CFO and CMO to lead global operations.

Mike Goss has been tapped as the company’s Chief Financial Officer and Deirdre Findlay will serve as Conde Nast’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Beginning in January 2020, Goss will lead the company’s global financial operations, global business development and partnerships, corporate strategy and legal and content rights management.

Findlay, who also begins her role in January, will oversee a range of operations at the company, including all consumer-marketing efforts, data-driven digital strategy focused on driving direct-to-consumer revenue, drives to increase subscription and membership program revenue and the identification of new direct-to-consumer revenue opportunities.

In addition, Findlay and her team will oversee brand development for global titles, consumer research and insights and audience development.

Prior to his appointment at Conde Nast, Goss worked with Sotheby’s for nearly four years, serving as its executive vice president-CFO. He has also worked with Bain Capital, where he held a variety of positions, including COO and CFO during his 15 years there.



Goss’s work with Bain Capital grew the company’s $10 billion in assets under management to $70 billion. Prior to that role, Goss held the positions of executive vice president-CFO at Digitas Inc. and executive vice president, CFO and a member of the board of directors of Playtex Products Inc.

Most recently, Findlay served as CMO at Stitch Fix, where she worked for a year and a half. During her time at Stitch Fix, Findlay launched the brand in the U.K. and lead the launch of its first integrated brand campaign. Findley spent half a decade at Google in roles that include senior director of global hardware marketing for Google Home, Chromecast and Wifi, which found her launching Google home.

Roger Lynch, CEO of Conde Nast, stated that Goss' experience "will help unify and modernize our global financial operations, and prioritize our investments for future growth." He added that Findlay will help "develop our relationships with our consumers to grow revenue, partnering across the company to strengthen our brand identities globally."

The new appointments follow Conde Nast’s efforts to unify Conde Nast and Conde Nast International operations. A first round of consolidations were announced last summer following Lynch’s appointment to CEO.
