He succeeds retiring McCorkindale; keeps president/CEO jobs.
Gannett Co. has added chairman to Craig A. Dubow’s other titles of president and chief executive officer, effective July 1.
Current Chairman Douglas H. McCorkindale has announced his retirement from the board and the company, effective today.
“Craig has demonstrated his superb ability to lead this company during the year since he became president and CEO,” said Karen Hastie Williams, presiding director of the board. “In that time, he has formulated a strategic plan, begun its implementation and brought together a management team worthy of Gannett’s new vision and mission.
“At the same time, we want to thank Doug for his tireless work at Gannett and as chairman. He has served this company with integrity, dedication and great skill,” Williams said. “In his 35 years with Gannett, he used his financial acumen to grow Gannett into the international company it is today. Along the way, he became the model media executive, demonstrating daily his ability to lead, to work with other companies in the industry and with Wall Street.”
Dubow became president and chief executive officer on July 15, 2005. Previously, he was president and chief executive officer of Gannett Broadcasting.
