Guardian News & Media (GNM) has named Evelyn Webster interim CEO of Guardian U.S.
Webster—who will hold the role until a permanent CEO is hired—is taking over for Eamonn Store, who is leaving The Guardian at the end of the month.
Webster most recently served as executive vp of Time Inc.
“Eamonn has led the U.S. business with passion and dedication at a time of huge volatility across the industry, and I’d like to thank him for all his hard work and many achievements,” said Guardian Media Group CEO David Pemsel, in a statement. “I am also delighted to have attracted someone of Evelyn’s calibre and experience, on an interim basis, to work closely with Lee Glendinning, the editor of Guardian U.S., and the senior team on the ongoing transformation of our U.S. operations and our continued focus on maximizing the enormous opportunities for Guardian journalism in the U.S. market.”
