Emma Winchurch-Beale, who joined The Washington Post as international sales director last year, will lead the alliance of publishers for the duration of 2017. Members of the World Media Group include Forbes, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
Prior to joining The Post, Winchurch-Beale held the role of client sales director at Bloomberg, managing client and regional sales teams across Europe, Middle East, and Asia. She also previously spent 15 years at The Economist.
It comes as the group has extended the entry deadline for the second annual World Media Awards by a week, until Thursday 23 February.
The World Media Awards – of which M&M Global is the official media partner – claim to be the only ones to celebrate the effectiveness of “cross platform, cross border, content-driven advertising”.
