Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., the chairman of The New York Times Company, said, “I am delighted to have Hays nominated to serve on our Board. In Hays, I believe we have another fifth-generation family member who not only has a deep understanding of the Company’s mission and business objectives, but also someone who lives its values.
“I am enormously grateful to Ellen for her dedicated service to our board. Ellen has been a director for almost the full length of my tenure as chairman, including serving as the presiding director from 2006 to 2013, and I am personally indebted to her for the many years of wise counsel and support over these almost two decades of tremendous change. Carolyn has played a crucial role in the continued development of the fifth-generation family members at the company. For this and all of her other contributions over the past seven years, I thank her.”
