AOL’s senior communications veep Marty Moe has quit the company.

Moe first joined the now-struggling internet firm back in 2001. He headed up AOL’s news and information group for its content unit before handing in his resignation yesterday.

Ex-Googler David Eun, who recently joined AOL as the company’s content strategy boss, confirmed in an internal memo on Monday that Moe had quit.

The missive to staff, seen by All Things Digital, did not reveal why Moe was leaving AOL. It said instead that he was “eager” to pursue “new challenges” alongside the politicos resignation favourite of wanting to spend more time with his family.

Moe will stay on at AOL until October, and in the meantime AOL is searching for a replacement. ®
