“As an award-winning reporter at a groundbreaking dot-com media organization, Sapna brings a great perspective to the board as we work to broaden our appeal among business journalists,” said Joanna Ossinger, SABEW president and a team leader at Bloomberg News.

Maheshwari has worked at BuzzFeed News since 2013. She previously was a reporter at Bloomberg News, where she covered retail and corporate credit and regularly contributed to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Maheshwari and a colleague won a Front Page Award from the Newswomen’s Club of New York in 2015 for their reporting on the rampant use of on-call shifts at retailers such as Victoria’s Secret. The chain, and several other major retailers, changed their staffing policies after the story ran.

Maheshwari was featured on Time magazine’s list of “140 Best Twitter Feeds of 2014? and has won the Punderdome 3000, a New York pun competition. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a native of East Lyme, Connecticut.

“I’m delighted and honored to join the board of SABEW, an organization I’ve been well-acquainted with since I was an undergraduate student at UNC,” Maheshwari said. “The past few years have shown that strong business journalism can take many forms and thrive anywhere there are passionate, fair and curious reporters. I look forward to working with SABEW in its goal of promoting excellent business journalism, which is more important today than it has ever been before.”

“Sapna Maheshwari’s digital experience will be a great asset to our board of governors,” said Kathleen Graham, SABEW executive director. “I appreciate her willingness to serve and look forward to benefitting from her innovative insight.”
