Cindy Jeffers has been named the new CEO and CTO of Salon. Jeffers comes to Salon from The Huffington Post, where she had worked since 2010; most recently as its technical director. Jeffers will succeed David Talbot, the site’s founder.

“Over the past year, David helped lead Salon through a period of strong growth and reinvigorated Salon’s reputation as a leading destination for political and cultural news,” writes Salon’s communications director, Liam O’Donoghue. “Now, with Cindy’s experience building the Huffington Post from a scrappy start-up to a media juggernaut, we’re excited to continue expanding our reach and social engagement with innovative new features, functions and strategies.”

“I’m extremely excited to be working with Cindy,” said Salon’s editor-in-chief, Kerry Lauerman. “Her ideas are going to help sharpen and expand Salon into new frontiers.”
