In a memo to staffers from Janet Robinson, obtained by The Awl, the New York Times Co. CEO said Mathis, who has worked for the company for 12 years, “has been a source of strength to me, our leadership team and her colleagues throughout the organization.”

“She was always on duty, actively involved in managing the reputation of The Times brand, a major accomplishment, given the massive amount of coverage The Times Company generates on a daily basis,” Robinson added.

The Times Co.’s VP for speechwriting and internal communications Ethan Riegelhaupt will step in to Mathis’ role for the time being, the memo said.
