According to a memo from Lex Fenwick, Dow Jones’ CEO and publisher of The Wall Street Journal, Rooney is departing to “fulfill his dream of traveling around the world with his wife.” Rooney joined Dow Jones from ESPN, where he had served as executive vice president of multimedia sales since 2005.
In the same note, Fenwick also announced that Trevor Fellows has been named Dow Jones’ global head of advertising sales. Fellows comes to the company from Bloomberg LP, where he served as head of global media sales in the states and the United Kingdom.
