John Henry is not only the relatively new owner of The Boston Globe, he’s also the publisher. Henry, who bought the Globe from The New York Times Company for $70 million last October, has tapped himself for the role. This is the kind of decision you can make when you own things.
In an announcement, Henry said “My main role as publisher is to ensure that the Globe has the right management and that management has the resources to accomplish its mission.”
In other Globe news, Henry named Mike Sheehan CEO. Sheehan was formerly a CEO at the ad agency Hill Holliday.
