RICHARD B. BARTHELMES JOINS AMERICAN EXPRESS PUBLISHING AS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT/GROUP PUBLISHING DIRECTOR AND PUBLISHER, TRAVEL & LEISURE

 NEW YORK, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard B. Barthelmes, has joined American Express Publishing as Publisher of Travel & Leisure, effective immediately, announced Dan Brewster, president and chief executive officer.
 He joins former HG Editor-in-Chief Nancy Novogrod, who became Travel & Leisure's Editor-in-Chief in July.
 Mr. Barthelmes will also serve as executive vice president/group publishing director. In that capacity, he will supervise all programs for advertisers seeking a package buy of American Express titles, including Travel & Leisure, Food & Wine, Departures and Your Company.
 "Dick is an industry pro, one who's extremely well regarded by his colleagues in the publishing and advertising communities," commented Mr. Brewster. "He possesses the grace, wit and sophistication that Travel & Leisure represents."
 As publisher of Gourmet since 1987, Mr. Barthelmes led the effort to reposition the magazine from a food magazine to an upscale, general- interest, lifestyle book. The result was a dramatic widening of the advertising base, with travel becoming the magazine's number one advertising category.
 "I am delighted to be working with American Express and Time Inc. Ventures on such a prestigious franchise as Travel & Leisure. The combined resources that these companies bring to the table can only create tremendous benefits for advertisers," said Dick Barthelmes.
 Time Inc. Ventures, which oversees Martha Stewart Living, Parenting, Health, Southern Living, and Sunset, and is the new business development arm of Time Inc., has been responsible for the operating management of American Express Publishing since March 1993.
