Jessica Sibley is the Chief Executive Officer of TIME.
As CEO, Sibley oversees the global media brand which includes TIME's iconic magazine and digital platforms that reach a combined audience of 105 million around the world; the Emmy Award-winning film and television division TIME Studios that has generated more than $100 million in revenue; a rapidly growing global live events business built around the powerful TIME100 and Person of the Year franchises; an industry-leading web3 division, including the TIMEPieces NFT community; Red Border Studios, producer of award-winning branded content; the website-building platform TIME Sites, which TIME acquired earlier this year; and the sustainability and climate-action platform TIME CO2. Today, as TIME approaches its centennial year, its audience is the largest in its history and its magazine, with more than 1 million subscribers, remains the largest U.S. print title in news.
Prior to joining TIME, Sibley was the Chief Operating Officer of Forbes, where she led all revenue and growth initiatives for the world’s largest business media brand. Sibley headed the Revenue Operations team, which includes Consumer Growth, Content and Design Studio, ForbesWomen, Sales and Marketing, Product, Technology, Asia, and Europe.
Recognized by her peers as an innovative sales executive and brand marketer, Sibley was responsible for Forbes’ industry-leading BrandVoice, Insights and ForbesLive platforms, as well as the company’s direct digital advertising sales, programmatic, ad operations, paid social, brand strategy, integrated marketing, strategic partnerships, licensing, and client-specific lead generation.
Sibley consistently led her team to new heights. Under her direction, the revenue team at Forbes achieved three consecutive years of growth from 2018 to 2022 in overall revenue, the number of premium custom-content campaigns executed on behalf of top tier clients, and a proliferation of ForbesLive and custom events, which generated significant new and recurring revenue streams. In 2020, Sibley established Forbes Virtual, which in six months hosted more than 100 virtual events built around 300 speakers and attracted over 50,000 attendees from 188 countries.
Before being appointed Chief Operating Officer, Sibley served as Forbes’ Chief Revenue Officer, and as Senior Vice President of U.S. and Europe and Chief Sales Officer prior to taking the CRO helm. Sibley has also held senior leadership positions at The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and Condé Nast. Sibley is also co-chair of IAB’s CRO Council, serves on the board of directors for The Ad Council, The Business Marketing Association and is a Member of the Board of Advisors at Chief, Her Campus Media and Prota Fiori, a sustainable luxury footwear startup. When she is not leading the next phase of TIME’s evolution, Sibley is an avid runner and supportive mother of two. She is a graduate of Hobart and William Smith Colleges and resides in New York City.
