Dear Colleagues,
I am pleased to announced [sic] two well-earned executive promotions that will take effect after the separation. Victoria Harker, current Gannett chief financial officer, will be promoted to executive vice president and chief financial officer of TEGNA, and Todd Mayman, currently Gannett’s senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, will be promoted to executive vice president, chief legal and administrative officer of TEGNA.

Both Victoria and Todd have been instrumental throughout the process of separating into two publicly traded companies. They will serve on TEGNA’s executive leadership team along with Bill Behan, senior vice president of labor relations; Kevin Lord, chief human resources officer; Dave Lougee, president of Broadcasting; and Jack Williams, president of Digital Ventures.

Please join me in congratulating Victoria and Todd!

Best Regards,
