After arriving in New York just over a week ago, Lauren DeWind began her job last Monday as associate special projects manager for the Condé Nast Media Group. Prior to her move, DeWind spent two years at Niche Media’s Los Angeles Confidential magazine, organizing the pre-Emmy and Oscar parties.
At Condé Nast, she will help produce events surrounding Fashion Rocks in early September and Movies Rock in December, in addition to a series of smaller functions, such as sponsorships and exclusive advertiser engagements. DeWind will work under directors Jillian Nichols and Coleen Keating, who report to corporate director of special projects Kristen Meehan.
