EXCLUSIVE: Condé Nast Entertainment Group president Dawn Ostroff said today that CNEG has named Sahar Elhabashi EVP and Chief Operating Officer. In her new role, she will report to Ostroff. This addition of the former Discovery Networks International and MTV executive comes six months after former CW Entertainment chief Ostroff became president. CNEG is charged with setting up film, TV and digital projects derived primarily from the content of Condé Nast’s 18 consumer magazines that range from GQ to Glamour, Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Bon Appetit, Condé Nast Traveler, Wired, Details and Architectural Digest. Elhabashi’s appointment also comes just more than two weeks after CNEG hired Imagine and Fox Searchlight exec Jeremy Steckler to be EVP motion pictures, and Sundance Channel exec Michael Klein to be EVP alternative programming. Elhabashi will oversee administrative, financial and strategic planning across all sectors of CNEG, including motion picture, television, digital and distribution. She will also work with others in the division’s senior management team on new business models and growth.
