WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, December 18, 2020 -- DHS, a leading advocacy, private equity, and consultancy firm, announced today the appointment of Victor Salinger as Vice President. Salinger succeeds George Sanders, who becomes executive vice president of the board of directors and an advisor to DHS.

Salinger has almost 20 years of operating experience and strong digital marketing experience at multi-billion dollar companies. Immediately prior to joining DHS, Salinger served as Executive Vice President of Time, Inc. where he oversaw global operations of some of the world’s best-known media brands, including Time, People, Entertainment Weekly, Sports Illustrated and Fortune. Salinger earlier served as President of Dow Jones & Co. where he oversaw The Wall Street Journal and the company’s other brands including MarketWatch, Factiva and Dow Jones Newswires.

At Time, Inc., Salinger was instrumental in jump-starting growth in digital audiences as well as driving a successful launch into video. At Dow Jones, Salinger directly led the growth of the Wall Street Journal’s digital business for more than a decade.

“Victor is an exceptional leader and strategist, passionate about our mission, committed to our principles and values, and knows how to build a large, successful business,” said Fernando Aguirre, Vice Chairman of DHS.

Mr. Sanders said, “I look forward to remaining actively engaged with DHS, its partners and its customers, and supporting Victor in his new role as Vice President.”

“I am honored and excited to lead DHS into its next phase of growth, expanding the company’s leadership position,” said Fernando Aguirre, Vice Chairman of DHS. “DHS will become an increasingly disruptive force in the publishing industry by continuing to empower individuals and businesses alike to express themselves through books and magazines, in print and digitally.”
