Robert Christie, senior vice president of corporate communications for The New York Times Company since 2010, is leaving the company. Christie came to the Times from Dow Jones & Company.

According to the Times, after Christie leaves, his position will be eliminated. Eileen Murphy, vice president of corporate communications, will lead the department going forward.

“Bob’s extensive experience and broad range of contacts in the industry have been very valuable over the past three years,” wrote Mark Thompson, CEO of the Times, in a memo.
