Martin Nisenholtz, a New York Times Company veteran and digital media pioneer, is retiring at the end of this year. Media Decoder reports that in a memo announcing the newsArthur Sulzberger Jr. and Janet Robinson explained just how important to the paper Nisenholtz has been.

When he joined in 1995, the Times’ website “had zero web page views,” stated the note. “Indeed, we had zero web users. Further, we had no web revenue. Today thanks in large measure to Martin’s vision and leadership, our digital numbers are dramatically different.”

Moves are expected to be announced soon in order to restructure things after Nisenholtz leaves.
