Industry Moves: AOL Europe CEO Dunne Leaving After Reorg

This story was written by Robert Andrews.
AOL's Europe CEO Dana Dunne is the latest to be hit by AOL's new broom - he's leaving the company after a European reorg, NMA says and a spokesperson confirmed to us: "Earlier this year, the AOL (NYSE: TWX) leadership made a decision to make some changes to the organisation in Europe - as part of that process, the position that Dana led changed considerably and, as a result, he's leaving the company. In the interim and until we finish that 100-day process, Ariel Eckstein will step in and manage the area."

The company could not tell us what those org changes were or whether they came before Armstrong's appointment as CEO in March or during the 100-day review, but said: "It wasn't a Tim decision." We never did get detail on how AOL Europe enacted the mothership's January decision to cut 10 percent of global staff. There aren't thought to be any other personnel changes at this time except Dunne and Eckstein, who had been VP of business expansion for Europe. More detail over at paidContent:UK
