Time Inc. spokeswoman Dawn Bridges is following her old boss, Time Inc. chairman Ann Moore, out the door. Her departure was announced as Moore’s successor Jack Griffin completes his organizational overhaul of the company.
As svp of corporate communications and press relations for the past several years, Bridges was the external voice of the company as it went through massive layoffs and restructurings to adjust to volatile economic times.
Before Time Inc., she ran global corporate communications for former Time Warner unit Warner Music Group.
Griffin praised her, saying, “Her top-flight communications expertise and experience proved critical to the company’s success.”
But he also has looked to bring in his own people, hiring Tim Clifford as svp of executive communications to handle his speechwriting; John Q. Griffin to lead a newly created News Group; and Randy Rothenberg as his chief digital officer.
Time Inc. said Bridges would leave the company after a transition period and that a search is under way for a successor.
