For third time in a year, Primedia lets go of PR chief

NEW YORK: Media outfit Primedia has parted company with its third

corporate PR chief in just over a year.

VP of corporate communications Suzanne Gibbons-Neff has quit the company

which owns New York magazine and has a stake in the media site

Gibbons-Neff, who is starting her own Connecticut-based firm, SGN

Communications and Marketing, is said to have wanted to work in a more

entrepreneurial environment.

She joined the firm following Primedia's acquisition of Internet search

engine, where she had held the same position. Gibbons-Neff

stepped into the shoes of Eileen Murphy, who joined Primedia in April

2000, but quit months later to join News Corp's Sky Global Networks.

Murphy had replaced long-serving VP of corporate communications, David

Adler who left to set up his own event Web site.

Warren Bimblick, VP of investor relations, is currently overseeing

corporate communications at Primedia. Bimblick said there had been no

decision made about whether to replace Gibbons-Neff.

Primedia is run by former NBC chief Tom Rogers.
