NEW YORK: Fred Yager resigned in early June after nearly four months as SVP of corporate communications at the American Stock Exchange, according to a source close to Yager who did not want to be identified.
Yager himself did not return e-mails and phone calls for comment.
His voicemail at the Amex tells callers to contact Catherine Casey, SVP of human resources at the exchange.
Before PRWeek confirmed that Yager had left, Casey said she could not comment. At that time, Mary Chung, Amex's head of corporate communications, said, "We do not comment on personnel matters."
The Amex could not be reached today because it is closed due to former President Ronald Reagan's death.
Yager was appointed to the Amex post in February. He left his job as president of World News & Information Network, a video news-provider he founded in Stamford, CT.
Shortly after his appointment, Yager told PRWeek he wanted to change the perception of Amex's brand as an also-ran to the nation's largest exchanges, NYSE and Nasdaq.
