The Washington Post has named Denise Burrell-Stinson as head of WP BrandStudio, a role in which she will lead the editorial vision and output for the content the Post produces on behalf of brands.
CRO Joy Robins said the team lead by Burrell-Stinson this year “became more of a consulting partner and fielded research to help guide clients to what our audiences wanted to hear.” Robins added that the team’s repositioning during the pandemic lead to “an enormous volume of content campaigns that launched throughout Q3 and are in production for Q4.”
