Business Women: Desirée Rogers Lands CEO Gig at Johnson Publishing

According to a press release, Linda Johnson Rice, chairman and CEO of Johnson Publishing Company, Inc. (JPC), announced today that Desirée Rogers has been named chief executive officer of JPC.

As you know, Rogers was unceremoniously discharged from her White House Social Secretary post earlier this year after a scandalous security lapse that allowed a reality TV couple to attend a White House state dinner.

JPC publishes Jet and Ebony magazines and is the world’s largest black owned publishing company. JPC’s other brands includes Fashion Fair Cosmetics and Ebony Fashion Fair.

”Desirée has a proven track record of successful business leadership,” said Linda Johnson Rice. “She is a longstanding confidant and a savvy businesswoman who is committed to the strategic growth of Johnson Publishing Company. I look forward to working side by side with her as we embark upon this next phase for the company.”

Rogers will oversee the day-to-day operations of the company. She will be responsible for aligning core business strategies for all brands.

    Good I guess. I really don’t know her background. What did she do before she screwed up her event planner job at the white house?

    this is what we call “taking care of our own.” you see boys and girls, when you get to a certain level and status in life, you no ‘apply’ for these type positions. you’re appointed. a favor is called in (noticed obama’s from the chi, johnson is in the chi, one gala affair begets another, etc) and you’re back in business, not a step missed.

    i dont knock it at all. how strong is your network?
