National Geographic creates Global Media group

National Geographic has created a new Global Media group composed of its magazine, book publishing, television, film, music, radio, digital media and maps units. Tim Kelly, president and CEO of National Geographic Ventures, has also been named president of Global Media.

“This new combined structure is an important step in the evolution of our work in this exciting and rapidly changing digital world,” Fahey said. “Our goal is to enhance and broaden coordination among our editorial units, refine our digital content strategies and better serve our members, our partners and our mission. Tim has lived and breathed National Geographic for more than 25 years and brings a unique combination of business skills and creativity to this important assignment. He’s the right person at the right time to help us find even more effective ways to inspire people to care about the planet.”

National Geographic Books publishes hundreds of titles annually for trade, library and direct-mail sales.

“Combined with our television and electronic assets, we deliver the best, the most fascinating content about this planet in exactly the form any consumer will demand — from books, magazines, television specials and rich broadband content to the latest in 3-D digital theatrical movies. And that is the point — these media are merging, so our organization must evolve to take advantage of myriad new opportunities," Kelly said.

Kelly has played a key leadership role for more than 20 years with National Geographic. His vision transformed the organization’s television operations from a documentary production unit into the multifaceted production, distribution and digital media company it is today. He was the catalyst and chief advocate for the development of the joint venture that launched the National Geographic Channels. Other additions include the formation of a global television distribution company, a giant-screen production and distribution arm, and the creation of a feature film division that was involved in the Academy Award-winning blockbuster hit <em>March of the Penguins</em>.
