Minna Rhee Is Out at SourceMedia
The chief product and audience officer had been with the company since joining as chief digital officer in 2013.
SourceMedia’s chief product and audience officer, Minna Rhee, has left the company after four-and-a-half years, a company spokeswoman confirmed to Folio:.
Rhee joined SourceMedia late in 2103 as chief digital officer, at the time a new role created amid the company’s ambitious and subsequently well-documented digital expansion.
She served for a time as chief digital and marketing officer, overseeing initiatives like the company’s relaunch of its digital platforms under a unified CMS before shifting to chief product and audience officer, her most recent title, around the time Matt Yorke was brought in from IDG as chief marketing officer, in January 2017.
Representatives for SourceMedia didn’t go into detail on the circumstances surrounding Rhee’s departure, and Rhee declined to comment, but her name and title appear to have been removed from SourceMedia’s corporate homepage as well as the mastheads of its various brands, including The American Banker and Financial Planning, at some point over the last three weeks.
A little over a month ago, CEO Doug Manoni informed staffers that he intended to step down and transition to executive chairman after eight years at the company helm.
