Richard Dawkins, Bauer Media president of audio, has stepped down due to “differing ideas around the next phase of transformation” of its business.
Dawkins joined Bauer Media in 2019 as chief operating officer of audio and became president of audio in 2022.
He said of his departure that “time has come to take on a fresh challenge”.
Yvonne Bauer, owner and CEO Bauer Media Group, said: “While I’m confident this change is for the best, it is very difficult to lose Richard. This decision has been incredibly challenging for us both, as we deeply respect and appreciate each other as colleagues and professionals. I would like to thank Richard for his inspiration, expertise and unwavering commitment in building the business to what it is today and wish him the very best both professionally and personally.”
His successor will be announced in due course.
