Denise Warren, a veteran of The New York Times for more than two decades, is leaving the paper. According to a memo from Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger and CEO Mark Thompson, her decision to depart was a result of her role being split into two roles.
Warren had most recently served as executive vice president for digital products. The role was split into executive vice president for marketing and executive vice president for digital.
“Denise Warren has made the decision not to occupy either of these positions and will leave the Times after a 26-year career that saw her serve in a wide range of strategically important positions throughout the organization,” wrote Sulzberger and Thompson.
Warren joined the Times in 1988 as a financial analyst. She has served a variety of key roles for the paper, including chief advertising officer and general manager of NYTimes.com. She also oversaw the Times’ now-successful implementation of a paywall in 2011.
