Michael Golden, The New York Times Company’s vice chairman, is retiring at the end of the year.
While the 67-year-old Golden will step down from his executive management role, he’ll continue as a director and vice chairman of the Times’ board of directors.
Golden was named vice chairman and elected to the Times’ board in 1997. He previously served as president and COO of the Times’ Regional Media Group, publisher of the International Herald Tribune, senior vp of the Times and more.
“Words are inadequate to convey my deep appreciation to Michael for all he has done over his many years in management at The New York Times Company,” said Arthur Sulzberger, the Times’ chairman and publisher, in a statement. “He’s been a true partner to me in leading this institution through multiple periods of monumental change.”
