News Corporation announced the appointment of Raju Narisetti as Senior Vice President and Deputy Head of Strategy for the New News Corporation, the proposed global publishing entity to be formed as part of the Company’s intended separation into two independent, publicly traded companies.
“Raju’s experiences around the world and across platforms make him the ideal person to drive our strategy during a period of increasingly intense globalization and digitization,” said Robert Thomson, Chief Executive Officer of the New News Corporation. “He knows how to transform newsrooms, to start a startup and to finish a project – all of these rare qualities will be crucial for the success of the new News.”
Mr. Narisetti has served as a Deputy Managing Editor of The Wall Street Journal and Managing Editor of The Wall Street Journal Digital Network since February 2012. In this role, he headed editorial teams and content strategy for The Wall Street Journal Digital Network, which includes WSJ.com, MarketWatch.com, WSJ Live video platforms, and Wall Street Journal and MarketWatch Radio Networks.
