Newspaper Association Names New CEO

From the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Newspaper Association of America (NAA) has named David Chavern its new president and CEO. Chavern previously served as the president—and founder—of the Center for Advanced Technology & Innovation at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“David’s extensive public policy experience paired with his focus on technology and innovation were certainly deciding factors in the board’s selection,” said NAA chairman Donna Barrett, in an announcement. “I am thrilled to welcome him aboard, and know that his passion for journalism and knowledge of the changing space will help to guide our organization through this exciting time.”

Chavern succeeds Caroline Little, who retired earlier this year.
