Politico evp of operations Miki King has been named vice president of operations at The Washington Post, an executive-level role at the publication.

In a statement, Washington Post chief financial officer Steve Gibson said King was “part of the elite corps of media executives,” adding, “Her proven track record of leading high-performing teams, executing large-scale projects, and driving business and growth strategy will serve The Post well.”

King had been with Politico since 2010, when she joined as executive director, business development, for Politico Pro, part of the team responsible for its development and launch. King was not among the names listed in last week’s surprise announcement that a number of high-level employees at Politico, including co-founder Jim VandeHei, were leaving the company within the year.
