Aron Pilhofer

In November 2016, Aron Pilhofer became the James B. Steele Chair in Journalism Innovation at Temple University. In addition to teaching, his work will focus on business models, digital transformation and new forms of storytelling.

Before to joining Temple, Pilhofer was Executive Editor, Digital, and interim Chief Digital Officer at the Guardian in London. In the newsroom, he was responsible for visual journalism -- including pictures, graphics, interactive and data journalism. As CDO, he led the Guardian’s 200-person product, technology, UX and engineering teams.

Prior to joining the Guardian, Aron was Associate Managing Editor for Digital Strategy and editor of Interactive News at The New York Times. He was responsible for helping develop and execute the newsroom’s approach to technology, new product, analytics, interactives and social media.

Aron began his New York Times career as a projects editor, where he specialised in stories related to money, politics and influence for the politics desk and Washington bureau. Prior to The New York Times, Aron was database editor at the Center for Public Integrity in Washington. Before working at the Center, Aron was on the national training staff of Investigative Reporters and Editors and worked for a number of years as a statehouse and projects reporter for Gannett newspapers in New Jersey and Delaware.

Aron also co-founded two news-related startups: DocumentCloud.org and Hacks & Hackers. Launched in 2009, DocumentCloud.org improves journalism by making source documents easier to find, search, analyse and share online. Hacks & Hackers, also created in 2009, is an informal organisation that brings journalists and technologists together.
