Ingeborg Volan, (@ingeborgv) Audience Director of Dagens Næringsliv, Norway, and Dmitry Shishkin (@dmitryshishkin), outgoing Digital Development Editor of BBC World Service, UK, were accepted onto the board at a board meeting in Oslo last week.
“Both Ingeborg and Dmitry are skilled digital news leaders who bring a depth of international and practical newsroom knowledge to our board at a time when world events demand we take action to protect our industry and promote its importance,” said Dave Callaway, President of the World Editors Forum. “We welcome their talents and strategic insights and look forward to putting them to work.”
Through the board, Shishkin’s considerable experience in newsroom transformation will remain accessible when he becomes Chief Content Officer of @CultureTrip in January. Culture Trip is a global hyper-growth startup operating in travel, media and entertainment.
Volan, a respected digital pioneer, replaces Helje Solberg who has recently been appointed News Director of the Norwegian state broadcaster NRK, one of the top editorial positions in the country. “We thank Helje for her tireless efforts and look forward to staying in touch as she goes on to great things,” said Callaway.
