Lex Fenwick is out as CEO of Dow Jones. News Corp. just announced that Fenwick — who joined the company in 2012 — is departing, and William Lewis will takeover as interim CEO.

The company also proclaimed that it “plans to review Dow Jones’ institutional strategy.”

“We thank Lex for his time and energy at the helm of Dow Jones, and in particular for his original vision of DJX as an innovative way to integrate content and deliver it to customers in a timely manner,” said Robert Thomson, CEO of News Corp, in a statement.

Lewis joined News Corp’s News International in 2010. He most recently served as News Corp.’s chief creative officer.
