American Express Publishing has named Philip Whitney to head a new division, Online Media and International. The unit was formed as a result of yesterday's reorganization, which grouped AmEx's online and international operations into a single unit. Whitney, who was formerly general manager of the company's international operations, will report to Mark Stanich, chief marketing officer, and Paul Francis, chief financial officer. Ed Kelly, CEO of American Express Publishing, said, "By bringing these nontraditional areas together, we will be able to develop these profit centers more strategically and at a more accelerated pace."  Whitney began his career at Time Inc. in 1992 as consumer marketing director of Money magazine. Later, he worked as vice president of marketing and online media at Jupiter Media Metrix.
