The Washington Post announced that Johanna Mayer-Jones will be promoted to Chief Advertising Officer, “a new role within the organization that leads revenue through advertising and client-based solutions.”

“I am thrilled to promote Johanna to Chief Advertising Officer, a new role that expands her focus across the entire Client Solutions team, building a strong advertising business for The Washington Post,” said Patty Stonesifer, interim Washington Post CEO. “She is a bold and visionary leader who has won the respect of clients and colleagues and will continue to identify and bolster business opportunities.”

According to WaPo, Mayer-Jones joined The Post as Head of North American Client Partnerships in July 2022 and over the past year, “Johanna has worked with the team to strengthen our commitment to clients and evolve our business to meet marketplace expectations.
