Emily Hewett

Head of Digital Audience and Project Neon content lead, Archant, UK

Since joining Archant in 2016 Emily has led a significant shift in audience growth and cultural change across the business. She has instilled a new focus on data, insight and analytics as she brings her vision into the heart of the newsrooms. Emily worked in digital content roles at Metro UK and Mail Online before joining Archant in 2016 and her strong journalistic background has enabled her to build local and loyal audiences across the Archant group with an emphasis on data-informed, original and quality content. Emily joined Project Neon as the content lead in September 2019 and will help launch the first of three Project Neon sites, Peterborough Matters, in partnership with the Google News Initiative’s Local Experiments Project in the coming weeks. She is determined to address the commercial challenges local news publishers face and believes Project Neon is a vital step towards achieving that goal.
