sales development, and strategic planning. She is proud to have been at The Times when it sold its very first digital subscription in 2011, and to see it soar to more than 9 million subscribers purchased from every corner of globe.

Prior to joining The Times, she was a corporate attorney at the law firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and a management consultant at Katzenbach Partners LLC (now a part of Booz & Company).

She is on the Board of the Art & Writing Awards, Scholastic's nonprofit that has been supporting creative teens since 1923.

Hannah graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Studies and has a Doctor of Law degree from Harvard Law School. She founded Harvard College’s very first student-run photography publication, as well as Harvard Law’s first student-run organization that explored the intersection of art and law. She is a graduate of the Juilliard Pre-College Division, where she studied classical piano.

Hannah immigrated to the United States from Korea at the age of nine when it was no longer safe for her father, a member of President Park Chung Hee’s government, to stay in the country. Hannah’s most rewarding and memorable experience has been to participate in her father’s political campaign in Taejon, Korea, after returning to the country 15 years later. She lives in New York with her husband and two sons.
