Stinton is currently head of digital at Seven West Media, responsible for digital products and technology across Seven West Media’s Western Australian business including The West Australian, Perth Now and 7 Perth. He previously held senior roles at Yahoo7, the joint venture between global internet company Yahoo and Seven West Media, and as general manager of RTRFM, a Perth-based community radio station. He is also the co-founder of eBev, a successful digital startup in the beverage industry. Dan began his career as a journalist, writing and editing for a range of news and lifestyle publications.

As managing director, Stinton will lead Guardian Australia’s commercial strategy, with responsibility for revenues and operations across advertising and other areas. He will report to Evelyn Webster, chief executive of Guardian US and Guardian Australia, and will work closely with Guardian Australia editor Lenore Taylor.

Evelyn Webster, chief executive of Guardian US and Guardian Australia, said: “Guardian Australia has grown its readership and revenues significantly since being founded in 2013, and is now a vital and distinctive news source for millions of Australians. Dan is an accomplished leader of digital media businesses, and will help Guardian Australia in the next phase of its growth.”

Stinton said of his appointment: “I’ve loved the Guardian since I started out in media over two decades ago, and I’ve admired the achievements of Guardian Australia since its launch. I’m looking forward to joining Lenore and the team to continue to grow Guardian Australia and ensure its distinctive journalism plays a dominant role in Australia’s media landscape.”

Stinton succeeds Ian McClelland, recently promoted to be Guardian Media Group’s managing director of corporate development based in London, after five years leading Guardian Australia.

Guardian Australia was founded in 2013 under the leadership of editor Katharine Viner, now editor-in-chief of Guardian News & Media, and McClelland, and has become one of Australia’s most popular news sites.
