Congratulations to Kirsi Hakaniemi, a former fellow from 2013-14, who has been promoted to Head of Digital Business at Keskisuomalainen Oyj, a Finnish media company, which publishes 58 media titles.Kirsi has worked at the newspaper Keskisuomalainen since 2003 in various roles in web journalism and digital media. First as a web and news journalist, then as a web producer and most recently as a digital media manager.

Kirsi comments on her time on the journalism fellowship programme 'In Oxford I had a lot of time to reflect my career and deepen my expertise. My research subject as a journalist fellow was very practical: I wanted to study how a mature regional media company can reinvent itself and what kind of steps have different newspaper companies taken, when going for the digital transition. Now I'm practically leading the same job at my own company.'
