New York Times Co. Names Kopit Levien COO

In a restructuring of its senior management team, the New York Times Co. has promoted Meredith Kopit Levien COO and said Kinsey Wilson is leaving as executive vice president, product and technology and that his role is being eliminated.

Kinsey’s technology and data responsibilities will be overseen by NYTC President and CEO Mark Thompson, while the product and design responsibilities will be overseen by Kopit Levien, in addition to her responsibility for audience, brand, consumer revenue, advertising and NYT Beta.

Kopit Levien has been a rising start inside the NYTC, ever since joining as executive vice president-advertising in 2013 from Chief Revenue Officer of Forbes Media.

She was promoted to executive vice president and Chief Revenue Officer of the NYTC in 2015.

The company said Wilson will continue to advise Thompson, Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet and other senior members of the company’s management team on “a range of strategic matters,” including its relationships with “other major digital platforms,” as well as the creation of “an expanded audio strategy.”

Kinsey was a key player in the development of “The Daily,” a popular audio report published by the NYTC.
