Dow Jones hires global chief revenue officer
Dow Jones & Co. chief executive officer William Lewis sent out the following announcement on Thursday:
I am delighted to announce the appointment of Josh Stinchcomb as Global Chief Revenue Officer, Media Sales for Dow Jones, reporting directly to me.
Josh joins us from Condé Nast, publisher of some of the world’s most famous magazine titles, where he was most recently Chief Experience Officer, having held a variety of senior roles with the company since 2006.
Josh’s new role with Dow Jones will see him focus sharply on maximizing advertising revenues across all our platforms and publications, as well as further supporting the commercial drive around our live journalism and events. Josh will be based in New York and will oversee media sales, strategic services and custom content. His appointment will be effective on August 27th.
To complement Josh’s role, Nancy McNeill moves into the role of Global Chief Revenue Officer, Corporate Sales, responsible for building on the recent success of our Professional Information Business.
Nancy will continue to report directly to me and to oversee both the Media and Corporate Sales teams until Josh’s arrival. Kristin Heitmann will report to Josh and Tom Rustowski will continue to report to Nancy.
Nancy and Josh will work closely together to ensure maximum collaboration between sales teams. These two key changes strengthen our sales operation by devoting dedicated and experienced leadership to our advertising, custom content, events and professional information offerings.
This leadership will further drive the depth and diversity of our revenue streams, which remain core to our strength as a global media company.
In addition to these appointments, I am also pleased to announce two important organizational changes relating to Christina Van Tassell, our Chief Financial Officer, and Ramin Beheshti, our Group Chief Product and Technology Officer. Christina and Ramin will now report directly to me. I am keen for both of them to work more closely with me at a strategic level as Dow Jones makes further strides forward in FY19 and beyond.
Please join me in welcoming Josh and thanking Nancy, Christina and Ramin.
