DJO Poaches New President from Time Inc. Interactive

Gordon McLeod will remain with Time Inc. until September 8; no word from Time on a succession plan.

Gordon McLeod, general manager of Time Inc. Interactive, will soon disembark to run the business side of Dow Jones Online as president. The newly created post has oversight of The Wall Street Journal Online, MarketWatch.com and Barron’s Online.

McLeod will remain with Time Inc. until September 8, and start his new position on September 11, a Dow Jones Online spokesperson said. Time declined to comment on its succession plan.

Prior to his management of Time’s interactive properties, McLeod was president of Sports Illustrated’s SI.com. Other Time Inc. sites include Time.com and People.com. The company also has a distribution and ad sales agreement with popular political blogger Andrew Sullivan.

McLeod’s hire comes five months after the departure of Nathan Richardson, who quit as Dow Jones Online’s general manager after less than a year on the job to join the International Rescue Committee’s Liberia office. DJO’s spokesperson said McLeod was not a direct replacement of Richardson, calling his an “expanded” role at the organization.

The news was first reported yesterday on PaidContent.org.
