Salon Names Cindy Jeffers CEO, CTO

Cindy Jeffers has been named the new CEO and CTO of Salon. Jeffers comes to Salon from The Huffington Post, where she had worked since 2010; most recently as its technical director. Jeffers will succeed David Talbot, the site’s founder.

“Over the past year, David helped lead Salon through a period of strong growth and reinvigorated Salon’s reputation as a leading destination for political and cultural news,” writes Salon’s communications director, Liam O’Donoghue. “Now, with Cindy’s experience building the Huffington Post from a scrappy start-up to a media juggernaut, we’re excited to continue expanding our reach and social engagement with innovative new features, functions and strategies.”

“I’m extremely excited to be working with Cindy,” said Salon’s editor-in-chief, Kerry Lauerman. “Her ideas are going to help sharpen and expand Salon into new frontiers.”
