Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE) has appointed Agnes Chu as president to lead its global growth strategy focused on supporting and monetizing digital video, television and film projects.Chu was previously the vice president of content for Disney+,  launching the platform with an original slate of programming that was recognized with 19 Emmy Award nominations in its first year.“Her leadership was instrumental to the success of one of the largest media launches in the last decade, and we are thrilled for her to join us and help drive the continued growth of our brands and audience through the power of video storytelling,” said Roger Lynch, global CEO of Condé Nast, in a statement.Chu, who has held various positions at Disney since 2008, is will further expand CNE’s content across platforms and build the company’s legacy, according to a statement.“The premium brands of Condé Nast have always inspired me, allowing me access to new vantage points and a vision of what is possible,” she said in a statement.Chu is replacing Oren Katzeff, who will move into a new role elsewhere in the company. He came under fire when old inappropriate social media posts resurfaced earlier this summer.“As society is changing, Condé Nast is changing,” Lynch said in a statement that did not mention Katzeff. “We need to listen, learn and take quick action to be a positive force in the industry.”Condé Nast also made headlines when vp of video Matt Duckor left the company after homophobic and racist tweets resurfaced, and Adam Rapoport, former editor in chief of Bon Appétit, resigned after an image of him in brownface surfaced as well as claims of unfair working conditions at the magazine.
