Tashween Ali

Director of Audience Development

Alma Mater: University of Michigan

I am a data-driven problem solver with over a decade of experience in audience development. I am  returning to my Midwestern roots after working at national publications including BuzzFeed, Hearst Corporation, and Conde Nast. At BuzzFeed, as a social strategist, I aggressively grew BuzzFeed’s lifestyle audience — setting the stage for the success of current brands like Tasty. I went on to lead social strategy for brands across Hearst Corporation and Conde Nast before coming back to BuzzFeed to lead audience growth for BuzzFeed News.

I joined FPI because of my passion for local journalism and eagerness to work with the talented, mission-driven team who are telling important stories.

When I’m not working, I like to watch movies on opening weekend, go on food adventures and take urban hikes.
