Pinterest announced it has appointed Andrea Wishom, President at Skywalker Holdings and former Executive Vice President at Harpo Productions, to its Board of Directors.
Ben Silbermann, CEO, and Co-Founder, Pinterest said, “For the past few months, the board has been meeting with many great candidates, and Andrea stood out for several reasons. She’s an expert in creating positive and inspirational content for global audiences, and a passionate advocate for building a company culture of respect, integrity, inclusion, and support — areas in which we must innovate and improve.”
Andrea Wishom said, “I’ve spent my entire career inspired to take on challenges both creatively and culturally. I’m particularly interested in Pinterest’s expansion into content and media. I’m equally interested in Ben’s vision of having a new type of conversation between employees and the board itself.”
Andrea currently serves as President at Skywalker Holdings, LLC and previously as Chief Operating Officer at Skywalker Properties, LLC. Prior to Skywalker, she spent 20+ years at Harpo Productions, where she held various production, programming, development, and executive roles for The Oprah Winfrey Show and OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network.
