Pacific Magazines commercial director Prue Cox has exited the business after less than 18 months at the publisher.
She takes up a new role as director of LinkedIn Marketing Solutions for Australia and New Zealand.
Cox resurfaced at PacMags in 2016 following her departure from NewsLifeMedia, where she was chief commercial officer for five months and at the company for five years.
CEO Gereurd Roberts let staff know about her departure today in an email obtained by AdNews.
He told staff she would be taking up a senior role at LinkedIn and her last day is Friday 27th October.
"Prue has been an asset to Pacific over the last 15 months, helping drive the transformation of our business in the commercial space. We would like to thank Prue for all her hard work and commitment during this time," he said.
While PacMags searches for a permanent replacement, Nicole Bence will step into the role as acting commercial director.
Roberts says: "This will ensure we maintain the consistency and momentum necessary to continue the drive towards our Q2 targets, which are number one priority for us all and must remain our focus. Prue and Nicole are working on a full and thorough handover, so we should not skip a beat."
At LinkedIn, Cox will report to country manager Matt Tindale and be responsible for helping customers and agencies leverage LinkedIn’s professional audience with relevant content marketing solutions.
Tindale says: “I am delighted to welcome Prue to the team. Her commercial expertise combined with her deep insight working on transformational programs in the Australian media and digital industry will be a great asset to our team and customers”.
