Additionally, Armando Turco will join Vox as the first GM of Vox Creative, to lead the company’s branded content division. “To say he has contributed to Condé Nast over the years is a wild understatement — by all accounts, Pete has been a tireless and passionate advocate for our company and brands and he will be greatly missed,” Jim Norton, chief business officer and president of revenue at CN, said in a memo. Bloomberg News has named Chuck Stevens editor for top news in the Americas. Stevens has been with Bloomberg since 1996 and most recently served as editor of the Asia finance team. Hunsinger’s exit comes in advance of a broad consolidation that’s planned at the New York-based publisher. Norton — previously an AOL executive — was hired late last year to reorganize the company and help build its digital business. Here are the rest of this week’s people on the move: Pete Hunsinger, current chief revenue officer of Golf Digest, will leave Condé Nast after 36 years of service. He’s moving to a marketing role at a consumer goods start-up. Rebecca Leber has joined Mother Jones as a reporter, covering climate, energy and the environment. She was previously the news editor at Grist. Vox Media has promoted Lindsay Nelson to the position of CMO. She served most recently as VP and head of global brand strategy at the company. Hunsinger served as CRO of Golf Digest since 2011, but has held various roles at Condé Nast, including VP and publisher of GQ. He was also a publisher at Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest and Gourmet. Emily Teel has been named editor-in-chief of Spoonful Magazine, a seasonal magazine and cookbook. She started at the brand as food editor with the launch of the magazine in Spring 2016. Emanuele Farneti has been named the new editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. He most recently served as editor of GQ Italia. Alexandra Shulman, British Vogue’s longest serving editor, is leaving the brand. Her successor will be announced later this year.

Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow Last seen in 2017, the King Ranch name is coming back to the Ford Expedition, and it may be a tempting upgrade for buyers looking for just a little more bling.For the 2020 model year, Ford order guides show the big SUV will once again offer the King Ranch edition, slotting between the Limited and Platinum trims. Effectively, it might be a nice little half-step for buyers looking for extra gear without taking a full step into the expensive Platinum trim.CarsDirect, which first reported on the order guide on Friday, said the Expedition King Ranch will set a buyer back $74,290 after a mandatory destination charge. Adding four-wheel drive will cost an extra $3,130. It’ll also be available for both the standard Expedition and the larger Expedition Max; the latter will start at $76,985 including destination. Since Ford isn’t ready to show us the King Ranch just yet, all we can do is describe what’s set to differentiate the model from other Expeditions. Per the order guide, the exterior will sport a Stone Gray trim on the bumpers, roof rails and a set of power running boards. To beef things up further, there’ll be a set of 22-inch six-spoke aluminum wheels with painted pockets, too. Taking a seat inside the Expedition King Ranch will reveal loads of King Ranch branding, naturally. The interior will be awash in Del Rio leather with King Ranch logos embossed on each row of seats. The same logo will be present on the floor mats and aluminum door plates. A 360-degree camera with a split-view function will be standard equipment and the power-folding mirrors will match the rest of the exterior’s Stone Gray look.Ford hasn’t detailed the 2020 Expedition’s changes yet, but you can bet it will be keen to underscore the King Ranch’s return when it’s ready.

Close A British government-backed review released on Thursday (14 May) is seeking billions of dollars to fund the development of 15 new antibiotics to counter antibiotic resistance.The review, led by former Goldman Sachs chief economist Jim ONeill, said the lump sum payments could add up to $16-$37bn (£10-23.5bn) over 10 years, but should only be made when companies have fully developed a successful bug-killing drug.Seen in a global context, and compared to the cost of inaction, its actually peanuts. Critically linked to that were also calling for an innovation fund, about $2bn perhaps over five years, that the pharmaceutical industry itself essentially finances, ONeill said.The review says that companies that develop new antibiotics should be awarded prize money of up to $3.5bn for each new drug, instead of selling the medication at a profit.Because if you come up with the specific incentives and rewards were suggesting to get them to produce more drugs, its essentially giving them a lot of financial relief. So we think its only right that they play a role in financing the research at the early stage, ONeill added.The prizes, of between $1.5bn and $3.5bn, should be funded in part by the pharma industry itself, ONeill said, probably also with input from national governments and the global taxpayer.I think the proposal were suggesting is better than what the pharma industry would like itself, which is much higher prices so they can just charge a lot more for it. I dont think that would be a better option for every individual in this country and elsewhere in the world, he said.The successful drugmaker would then be required to make no profit from its sales of the drugs to governments and healthcare providers around the world, ONeill added, saying this approach would de-link the profitability of a drug from its volume of sales.I think there are two core problems. Theres a demand problem and a supply problem. The paper weve published today focuses all about the supply issues of getting more drugs, he saidIn recent years, bugs resistant to multiple drugs have evolved at the same time as drugmakers have cut back investment in finding new ways to fight them, creating a global health threat as superbug strains of infections like tuberculosis and gonorrhoea have become untreatable.ONeill, who was asked last year by British Prime Minister David Cameron to take an economists view of the problem, said far too little is currently invested in hunting for new drugs against drug-resistant infections.In his initial report, ONeill estimated that anti-microbial resistance (AMR) could kill an extra 10 million people a year and cost up to $100tn by 2050 if it is not brought under control.ONeill has also proposed that a $2bn innovation fund financed by drug companies should be created to invest in early-stage research and speed up development of new medicines to fight drug-resistant superbugs.Sally Davies, the UK governments chief medical adviser, welcomed ONeills latest report, saying it would stimulate important conversations between governments, pharmaceutical companies and other funders.
