Quartz makes changes to its staff lineup, Mashable hires two, and more...
Bloomberg Media’s global chief revenue and chief partnerships officer Paul Caine announced yesterday that he is leaving the company after two years in the position, effective mid-July.
Caine joined the company from Westwood One, where he served as CEO. Previously, he served as EVP, chief revenue officer and group president at Time Inc.
“With the global ad sales and marketing of Bloomberg Media now in a strong position, I am excited to share that I will be leaving Bloomberg to refocus and reprioritize my efforts. Those who know me are well aware that throughout my career I have delicately balanced a strong passion for our industry with a deep involvement in many creative, philanthropic, and entrepreneurial ventures that closely align with my passions and experience,” Caine said in a staff memo.
He also revealed that he is leaving the company to further pursue some of his existing commitments.
In the interim, chief operating officer Jacki Kelley will assume his duties. “As some of us have experienced, there occasionally comes a time when you simply want to test yourself in a new way — especially after a successful run. Paul has determined that, for him, the time is now,” Kelley said in a separate staff memo.
