WaPo Re-org: The CliffsNotes

wapo org chart.jpg

Yesterday, WaPo Media President and General Manager Steve Hills treated staffers to a PowerPoint deck and novella memo that outlined the company’s organizational changes for 2010.

The very long and detailed email (after the jump) announced seemingly minor rearrangements of the current org chart, a few promotions and a couple new roles. My 15 sec. summary:

Gregg Fernandes was promoted to Vice President, Circulation. The Marketing Managers, who support WaPo’s Advertising business, will report to a newly created role – Director, Advertising Marketing. That position will be filled by an existing Marketing Manager and will report to Ken Babby, VP, Advertising. Mike Shenk and his team, Marketing Creative Services, will join Advertising Operations. David Jones and the Community Relations team now report to Kris Coratti, Director, Public Relations. Laura Evans will take on an expanded role of Director, Marketing Research and Analytics as she assumes responsibility for the Digital analytics team and Nick Findlay will assume a new role as the Director, Retention Marketing.

All changes are effective Jan. 1, 2010. The full memo after the jump.
