Times VP Moya Neville leaves for Atlanta paper

ST. PETERSBURG — Moya Neville, vice president and chief sales officer of the St. Petersburg Times, announced Wednesday that she will leave the newspaper in September.

Neville is leaving her post at the Times to become the senior vice president of advertising sales for the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

"I leave with much sadness," she wrote in a letter to the staff. "I take with me a continued belief in the St. Petersburg Times, the future of the industry and a conviction that good journalism and good business can be successfully intertwined."

Her announcement comes a week after Marty Petty, publisher of the Times and executive vice president of Times Publishing Co., also said she will leave the company this fall.

"The departure of two senior executives, Marty and Moya, is a lot to absorb, but the St. Pete Times is a sturdy organization, with sterling values and rich in talented and dedicated staffers," editor, CEO and chairman Paul Tash told staffers in a letter Wednesday. "That is a credit, in large measure, to those colleagues, and we honor them by keeping the Times on a course of excellence."

Neville, 48 got her bachelor's degree in advertising from the University of Florida. She came to the Times in 2004 as the newspaper's display advertising manager and became the vice president and chief sales officer in 2008.
