In an internal memo this morning, the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Phil Semas announced that the paper has hired Mireille Grangenois as their new publisher. FBDC has the memo:
I’m delighted to announce that we have hired Mireille Grangenois to be our new publisher.
Mireille is a former vice president for advertising at The Baltimore Sun, where she also served as vice president for marketing and interactive media and as general manager of baltimoresun.com.
Before joining the Sun, she was an advertising executive at Washington Post Newsweek Interactive and at the Philadelphia Inquirer.
She has also been a reporter for the Sun, USA Today, and BusinessWeek, and was director of minority affairs at the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
She is currently a managing director at the Burson-Marsteller public-relations firm, where she is responsible for creation of a new
multicultural practice. Her clients include the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the United Negro College Fund, and Hampton University.
Mireille will join us no later than the end of May. I’m sure everyone will enjoy working with her.
