Cristi Hegranes

Chief Executive Officer & Publisher
I lead business and development operations at Global Press and serve as the publisher of Global Press Journal, our multi lingual, award-winning publication. I created Global Press' industry-leading Duty of Care program for local journalists in challenging global markets using a holistic combination of physical, emotional, digital and legal security. And I built the Global Press Wellness Network to support the mental health needs of our local journalists across the world. I am the lead author of the Global Press Style Guide, which exists to promote dignity and precision in international journalism. My greatest passion is creating world-class employment for badass women across the globe.
