Gannett CEO taking another medical leave
- September 16, 2011
Craig A. Dubow, the chairman and CEO of McLean-based publishing giant Gannett Co. Inc., is taking another leave of absence to deal with an undisclosed medical condition.
Dubow, who has been CEO since 2005, also took medical leave after undergoing back surgery in June 2009. He returned four months later.
Gracia C. Martore, Gannett’s president and CFO, will run the company in his absence as she did two years ago.
“We wish Craig well during this difficult personal time, “ Duncan M. McFarland, the company’s presiding director, said in a statement. “The board has confidence in Gracia and our very capable management team to run the day to day operations of the company, and we believe Gannett won’t miss a beat at this important juncture.”
“I believe Gannett is in very good hands as we continue to transform the company and position it for a successful future,” Dubow said in a statement.
