Miami Herald Names 1st Latina Exec. Editor

 SACRAMENTO, CA. -- The Miami Herald has named Managing Editor Aminda "Mindy" Marques Gonzalez as executive editor.

A 19-year veteran of The Miami Herald newsroom, Marques Gonzalez, 46, grew up in Miami-Dade County and joined the paper as a reporter after graduating from the University of Florida in 1986. She later worked as an editor on the paper's Neighbors section and metro desk.

Marques Gonzalez left the paper in 2002 to work as the Miami bureau chief for People Magazine. She returned to The Miami Herald in 2007 as a multimedia editor. She later was promoted to senior editor for news and was named managing editor in May 2010, second in command in the newsroom.

"I am thrilled that Mindy is taking the helm of The Miami Herald newsroom," said David Landsberg, president and publisher of The Miami Herald Media Company. "An outstanding journalist with a deep personal connection to South Florida, she's uniquely qualified to lead us into the future."

Marques Gonzalez becomes The Miami Herald's first Latina executive editor.

"I came up professionally through the Herald. I've either worked with or worked for just about everybody in the newsroom," she said. "I'm incredibly humbled and honored to be leading such an amazing group of journalists."
