CEO Rich Zannino Quietly, Kindly Resigns From Dow Jones
So Rich Zannino announced, as was expected, that he is resigning his post as CEO of Dow Jones. From the Journal itself:
Mr. Zannino's resignation, which is expected to be the first of a series of executive departures from Dow Jones, highlights the dramatic change about to sweep through the company, publisher of The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, and Dow Jones Newswires. News Corp's acquisition of the company, expected to be approved by Dow Jones shareholders at a meeting next Thursday, ends more than a century of control by the Bancroft family.Look at all that excited verbiage in there. After the jump, we have Zannino's sweet "I Got a $30 Million Severance" good-bye e-mail to his colleagues.
