Stocks in this article: NWSNWSA

News Corp announced today the appointment of William Lewis as Chief Executive Officer of Dow Jones, effective immediately. Mr. Lewis, most recently Chief Creative Officer of News Corp, was named interim CEO of Dow Jones in January.

Robert Thomson, Chief Executive of News Corp, said: "Will Lewis has brought focus and energy to the task at Dow Jones, which has refined its institutional products and reconnected with core clients. He has also brought extra vigor to The Wall Street Journal franchise, which is developing its digital strategy, an area in which Will has particular expertise. I am very confident in Will's ability to grow the business in the months and years ahead."

William Lewis said: “I appreciate Robert’s confidence in me and I am grateful to all at Dow Jones who have worked so hard these past few months to make progress across our businesses.” He added: “We are building a powerful team that is devoted to crafting a strategy for growth that marries the rich legacy of Dow Jones with the digital innovation that is defining our future.”

During Mr. Lewis’ tenure as interim CEO, Dow Jones has reinforced its long-term commitment to the institutional business, revitalizing its strategy with a strong emphasis on customer relations and feedback. Dow Jones recently rolled out multiple enhancements to the flagship Factiva information product.

Anoushka Healy, Chief Strategy Officer for News Corp, will assume responsibilities previously overseen by Mr. Lewis as Chief Creative Officer.
