The Daily Beast CEO Heather Dietrick

Heather Dietrick joined news site The Daily Beast in 2017 after rising through the ranks at the now defunct news blog Gawker. As president of Gawker, Dietrick was on the frontlines of the lawsuit with Hulk Hogan that ultimately bankrupted the company. Dietrick’s background is in business and law—she’s got both a JD and an MBA—and her strategy has always been to take risks.
