Dow Jones & Co. CEO Almar Latour sent out the following announcement on Thursday:
I’m pleased to share that Mae Cheng is appointed SVP, Barron’s Group. In her new role, Mae will be responsible for driving growth for some of the fastest-growing businesses at Dow Jones.
Mae takes on this exciting new challenge following a highly successful five years running Mansion Global, which under her leadership grew sharply in revenue each year. Mae is entrepreneurial, resourceful, creative, savvy in encouraging innovation across her teams and has a rich history in news gathering. She is a builder, whose originality and drive are much needed at this time of great change in media — and at a pivotal time of reset for Dow Jones.
At Mansion Global, she built out a fast-growing global digital presence as well as a custom content product line that spans digital, print and experiences. She also helped reinvigorate the print business, overseeing the launch of Mansion Global magazine and various commercially successful newsprint inserts. At Barron’s Group, she helped build our events offerings across Barron’s, MarketWatch, and Mansion Global. She also relaunched Barron’s Penta to be a must-read wealth management and luxury lifestyle magazine for financial advisors and other subscribers alike.
Prior to her role at Mansion Global, Mae was a special projects editor at The Wall Street Journal. Before that, she held various top editing roles at Newsday, Cablevision and amNewYork.
She lives in Manhattan with her husband and son.
Mae will report to me and will be part of Dow Jones senior management team. Please join me in wishing her well in her new role.
