The New York Times has hired Lisa Ryan Howard as senior vice president of advertising.

She replaces Brendan Monaghan, who left the Times last year and is now chief revenue officer and publisher of Conde Nast Traveler. At the Times, he served as senior vice president of advertising, vice president of luxury, and publisher of ‘T: The New York Times Style Magazine.’

EVP-chief revenue officer of the New York Times Meredith Kopit Levien said: “We are more than two years into a wholesale transformation of the advertising business at The Times. Lisa’s leadership skills, long track record of experience in luxury and lifestyle businesses and digital acumen make her the optimal executive to help us take our work and our team to the next level.”

According to the Times, Levien and Howard are expected to appoint a vice president and publisher of ‘T: The New York Times Style Magazine’ to replace Monaghan soon.

Howard officially begins her new role on Feb. 22.
