News Corporation announced the appointment of Raju Narisetti, known to Indian
readers as the founding editor of Mint, 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, says a press release.
Narisetti is currently a deputy managing editor with The Wall Street Journal and
managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Digital Network.
Narisetti will begin his new role on 11 March and will report to Anoushka Healy,
who was recently named Chief Strategy Officer for the New News Corporation.
Narisetti will work with Healy to oversee and implement new projects while helping fashion the strategic direction of the new company, which comprises leading print and digital publishing businesses, an education division and other Australian assets.
He will be involved in new digital projects and continue to guide the digital growth of the existing companies in the new News Corporation as they seek to further expand the distribution of their content across digital products and platforms.
"Raju's experiences around the world and across platforms make him the ideal person to drive our strategy during a period of increasingly intense globalisation and digitisation,” 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."
