Almar Latour, CEO of Dow Jones and Publisher of The Wall Street Journal, sent out the following:
I am pleased to share a few organizational updates and expanded responsibilities that will position Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal for continued growth and unlock new ways to better serve our subscribers and clients:
Thomas San Filippo, SVP for Customer Service, will join the executive leadership team. He and his team will report into Chief Marketing Officer Sherry Weiss and work closely with marketing and other parts of Dow Jones to continue placing customers at the center of everything we do. The Customer Service team will lead our efforts to connect our employees to our clients and subscribers more methodically, with more depth and frequency.
Mae Cheng, EVP and General Manager for leadership products and services, will oversee event production for all of Dow Jones. This will enhance the high standards of our events team across all of our publications and brands as we continue to double down on both our live journalism efforts and C-suite offerings, which are becoming increasingly valuable to our subscribers and members.
David Cho will become Head of Content Strategy for Dow Jones Wealth and Investing, helping steer the expansion of our growing professional and retail investing subscriber base. David will continue in his role as editor in chief for Barron’s and oversee the editorial direction for all titles in the Wealth and Investing portfolio. The editorial leaders of MarketWatch, Investor’s Business Daily and Financial News will now jointly report to David and Dan Shar, EVP and General Manager for Dow Jones Wealth and Investing.
These updates will allow us to deepen our expertise across our company and better deliver the news, information, experiences and support that our customers have come to expect from us.
Thank you, as always, for your hard work and commitment to Dow Jones.
