Hearst Magazines International (HMI) named Peter Yates its new executive creative director of international branding.

Yates, who has been HMI’s creative director since 2009, is set to expand his role to include greater involvement with product licensing, brand extensions and the creative direction for all the company’s many titles. HMI, a unit of Hearst Corp., publishes 285 magazines and 200 websites in 34 languages across 81 countries, including 61 editions of Cosmopolitan, 36 editions of Harper’s Bazaar, 28 editions of Esquire and 12 editions of Good Housekeeping.
