Boston Globe Hires First Woman CEO

Boston Globe Media Partners announced that Linda Pizzuti Henry is the next chief executive officer of the news organization. After spending the last seven years as a managing director, she helped accelerate the media outlet transition into a digital media company.

Henry, alongside her husband and Boston Red Sox principal owner John W. Henry, bought the Globe and now will be the first woman running the Globe in its nearly 150-year history.

“When I walked into the old Morrissey Boulevard building with John on our first day over seven years ago, past the hum of the presses and the welcoming smell of ink, I wasn’t sure exactly what my role would be,” Henry said. “But I knew that I was lucky to work here, and it was clear to me why this institution needed to not only survive the secular decline of trusted local journalism, but also needed to innovate and evolve and invest in a new way of doing things in order to thrive and effectively serve our mission.”
