Washington, D.C. (September 24, 2014)—Atlantic Publisher and Vice President Hayley Romer announced today that Bill Mulvihill will join the company next month as Associate Publisher. Working closely with Romer, Mulvihill will oversee the global sales team and help lead advertising efforts across all of its platforms.
Mulvihill has spent his career in publishing, and joins The Atlantic after more than three and a half years with Vanity Fair, most recently as its national advertising director. He previously held leadership sales roles at Entertainment Weekly, The Week, and Cookie magazines.
“Bill is a venerable talent in the business, with a great wealth of experience and strong connections with stellar brands,” said Romer. “We are thrilled to welcome him to The Atlantic.”
Mulvihill joins The Atlantic during a time of record audience and revenue growth. Print and digital ad revenue has reached record highs, with Romer’s sales and marketing teams generating dozens of large-scale programs with new and existing partners, among them Adobe, athenahealth, Siemens, CNN, and Omega. As Associate Publisher, Mulvihill will, with Romer, direct a team of sales professionals based around the country.
“The Atlantic is a brand I’ve long admired, and joining the team feels like a dream career move,” said Mulvihill. “It has evolved into a multi-platform category leader that isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo and is leading the way in “best in class” content and brand marketing programs.”
Prior to joining Vanity Fair in early 2011, Mulvihill spent three years as the East Coast advertising director for Entertainment Weekly, and between 2004 and 2007 oversaw sales efforts for The Week, and later for Cookie magazine. Mulvihill began his sales career at The Chicago Tribune.
