Hearst has named Renee Peterson vice president of human resources for Hearst Newspapers, which publishes 15 daily and 34 weekly papers. Peterson joined Hearst last year. She came to the site from Hargrove, Inc., where she was director of human resources.
“Renee will bring important tactical and strategic human resources leadership to all of Hearst Newspapers,” said Hearst Newspapers president Mark Aldam, in a statement. “Our newspapers, websites and digital marketing services succeed in serving our audiences and customers because of our diverse, creative and hard-working colleagues. Having Renee provide the HR leadership to recruit, develop and retain the best multimedia talent is key to our continued success.”
Peterson, who recently became the San Francisco Chronicle’s VP of human resources, will continue in that role.
