Dow Jones names Bernard its chief experience officer
Dow Jones & Co. CEO Almar Latour sent out the following to the staff:
I’m pleased to share that Daniel Bernard is appointed Chief Experience Officer for Dow Jones.
In this newly created role, Daniel will oversee the Product, User Experience and Technology functions across our business. He and the team will be responsible for shaping the way customers, readers and users engage with our brands and franchises.
Daniel’s first task will be to rapidly modernize our existing products to ensure that they offer a world-class experience in every aspect — visuals, tools, data, mobile, video, social and more. He and the team, working closely with our newsrooms as well as our information service business, will also shape new products and drive innovation, all tightly focused on providing decision-makers with the trusted news, information and analysis that they need, anytime and anywhere they want it.
Many of you have already had the opportunity to work closely with Daniel. Prior to joining the Technology team in an interim role last year, he served as SVP & Deputy Publisher of Barron’s Group, where he was highly successful in modernizing Barron’s. His collaborative approach contributed to Barron’s and MarketWatch achieving new heights. He previously was Chief Product Officer at Gannett, Head of Product for Time.com, Fortune.com and Money.com at Time Inc., and Chief Product Officer for The Wall Street Journal Digital Network at Dow Jones. He started his career as a Marketing Manager at MarketWatch, when it was a startup.
Daniel will report to me and will be part of Dow Jones senior management team. Please join me in wishing him all the best.
