Felix DiFilippo Named Car and Driver/Road & Track Publisher


Thursday, March 8, 2012


Felix DiFilippo, who as The Atlantic associate publisher (since 2008) was the top lieutenant to publisher Jay Lauf, was hired Wednesday (March 7) by Hearst Men's Group publishing director (since July 2011) Jack Essig to be publisher/chief revenue officer of Car and Driver and Road & Track. The two magazines were among the former Hachette Filipacchi Media titles that Hearst Magazines acquired from Lagardère SCA in May 2011.

In this role, DiFilippo will be directly responsible for the advertising and marketing efforts of these two brands on all platforms: print, tablet, online, mobile, social and events. He replaces Robert ("Rob") Houghtlin III, who will move into a newly created position as executive director of automotive sales for the Hearst Men’s Group.  He will be responsible for the auto advertising efforts across the C&D, R&T, and Popular Mechanics brands.

DiFilippo, when he starts on March 26, will be based in New York. Houghtlin will remain based in Detroit.

“Felix will be instrumental in taking these highly respected brands to the next level of growth, building on the foundation that Rob and the team created,” said Essig. “We see great potential in these titles, and we’re excited to further develop them a full 360 degrees.”
