Lisa Riley has been appointed MD of uk.women.com, a female interest
web site set to launch at the end of the year. The former MD of now
defunct home delivery service Somerfield 24-7 will develop the joint
venture between The National Magazine Company and US group Women.com.
NatMags stressed that the site will not simply reproduce material from
its magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Company. ’You don’t sit down and
curl up with your laptop on the sofa,’ a spokeswoman said. ’You want to
be able to get what you want quickly.’
