Less than a month after taking a medical leave, Craig Dubow has resigned as chairman and CEO of Gannett, the company announced today.
“For me, the decision to step down was difficult, but I must now focus on my health and my family,” Dubow said in a statement. “I will miss working with the talented team at Gannett and firmly believe the company’s best days lie ahead.”
Dubow will be replaced as CEO by Gracia Martore, who has been acting as principal executive officer since in Dubow’s absence. Marjorie Magner has been named chairman of the board.
“I have great admiration for what Craig has achieved in building our business to meet the changing needs of consumers and businesses today,” Martore said in a statement. “We will miss him and wish him and his family the very best.”
