Ellie Duque has joined Deadline as President. Duque will bring her vast experience to help the continuing evolution of Deadline beyond being the preeminent breaker of Hollywood news, and into other domestic and international platforms.
Duque replaces Stacey Farish, whose resignation was accepted during the summer. Duque will report to Tom Finn, Penske Media’s Executive Vice President of Operations and Finance based in Los Angeles.
She starts October 9. “We are a close-knit team at Deadline and are so proud of what we’ve built,” said Nellie Andreeva and Mike Fleming, Deadline’s Co-Editor-In-Chief. “It was important to find someone who truly understands who we are and where we want to go.
Ellie’s deep knowledge and contacts in the entertainment industry and her collaborative nature have us excited for what the future holds.” In her new role, Duque will oversee Deadline’s revenue streams and business operations across all platforms, leading sales, marketing, international, licensing and creative strategies including social media, video and events.Read more on deadline.com
