David Carey Echoes William Randolph Hearst in New Year's Note to Staff
I don't expect current disruption of the broader media industry to calm down -- this really is the new normal. Fortunately, the talent and flexibility of our teams, combined with the financial strength and growth orientation of Hearst Corporation, provides us with a major competitive advantage.
If our founder could see all that was achieved this year, I'm sure he would feel the same way I do: that we have been, and will continue to be, "alarmingly enterprising" in all that we do.
I wish you and those closest to you the happiest of New Years. I know I could not do my job without the patience of my family, who will soon join me in Times Square. And we know that Hearst Magazines would not succeed without the love and support of the families and friends who stand side by side with our 12,000 colleagues all over the world. As we ring in 2015, I want to toast you and thank you -- and them -- for all we accomplished in 2014 and all that's to come.
