NPR has expanded its executive ranks with the appointment of a vice president/chief people officer.
Jeff Perkins will lead the development of NPR's human resources and talent management strategy, according to the network, which also says Perkins will play a central role "cultivating a constructive, supportive and effective corporate culture."
Perkins, who begins the new job on July 6, comes to NPR from Huntbridge, Inc., a human resource and consulting firm he founded. Previously, Perkins held human resource management positions with Fox Interactive Media, AOL International, AOL, CompuServe and Netscape and Nielsen International in Europe.
