The Post’s first office in Singapore to open in January

Jed Hartman, Chief Revenue Officer at The Washington Post, announced today that Terrie Lam was named Regional Head Asia-Pacific. Lam will be based in The Post’s first Singapore office where she will be responsible for for identifying new market opportunities, managing the sales activities and working to build new content partnerships.

“As we focus on expanding our international readership which surged in the past year with nearly 25 million visitors, the addition of Terrie and the opening of the new Singapore office will be most beneficial as we continue to grow abroad,” said Hartman. “Having worked internationally in this industry for more than 18 years, we look forward to Terrie’s valuable contributions to support our sales team in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Lam most recently worked at Forbes Media as Deputy Executive Director in charge of leading and growing sales revenues throughout Asia-Pacific through developing integrated communication strategies for branding partners. There she launched the inaugural Forbes Under 30 Summit Asia which gathered 250 of Asia’s most promising young entrepreneurs, innovators and social leaders who are transforming business, technology and changing the fields in their respective industries. Prior to joining Forbes, Lam held a variety of senior roles at The Economist Group including Director of Southeast Asia. Earlier in her career she also worked for MTV Asia and Merrill Lynch M&A Singapore.

“I’m delighted to be joining The Washington Post at such a pivotal stage in the company’s thriving success and growth. I am confident I can support its expansion into new markets in ways that will benefit our customers and clients,” said Lam.
