Condé Nast Cuts Patricia Steele

Condé Nast is cutting ties with communications head Patricia Steele. Steele — who had been with the company since late 2011 — was informed the company was letting her go by Patricia Röckenwagner, who joined the company last month.

Steele had served as senior vice president of corporate communications for Condé. According to WWD, her departure is a direct result of a restructuring that was implemented by Jill Bright, the company’s chief administrative officer.

There is no word on if Steele will be replaced, or if Röckenwagner will simply take over her duties.
