NEW YORK—Gary Ginsberg, executive vice president of global marketing and corporate affairs at News Corporation, will be leaving the company at the end of the year. Ginsberg will remain as a consultant to Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corporation.
Ginsberg joined the company in January 1999 as executive vice president for corporate communications, and over the next 11 years expanded his portfolio of responsibilities to include investor relations, corporate social responsibility, and global marketing. He was named to the company’s executive management committee in 2000, and in 2007 was named to the seven-member office of the chairman.
Following Ginsberg’s departure, Teri Everett, senior vice president for corporate communications, will become the new head of corporate communications and corporate social responsibility; Reed Nolte, senior vice president for investor relations, will assume the top position in investor relations.
“Gary has been one of my most trusted and effective executives over the past decade,” says Murdoch. “He developed and expertly managed our corporate affairs efforts, spearheaded initiatives that added significant value to our businesses, and is as well-liked and respected a colleague as any in our company. As difficult as it was to accept his decision to leave, I am pleased he has agreed to continue to serve as an advisor.”
