Meet Reddit’s New Director of Communications

Internet company PR jobs don’t get much better than this. In the sense that alongside Yahoo and a few other very select sites, reddit can be counted on for gargantuan, self-generated publicity momentum.

Victoria Taylor is reddit’s very first director of communications. She started last month and comes by way of ID PR. Per the above, here are some recent reddit numbers:

As of May 2013, reddit had 4.7 billion page views and 71.1 million unique visitors.

Perhaps Taylor can convince one or more of the Hollywood studios to embed the site’s fantastic Ask Me Anything’s (AMA) into the moribund press junket process. FishbowlNY would love to see, in real Four Seasons Hotel time, how questions from the vox populi compare with those of the paid professionals.

This is a newly created reddit position, headquartered in New York. To find out more about Taylor, who grew up in Milwaukee, check out this recent reddit blog post. Meanwhile, our heartiest congrats to her on this fantastic new job.
