Peter Land is gone as senior VP-communications at AOL in a continuing shuffle of its PR ranks under CEO Tim Armstrong.
The one-time global managing director for sports at Edelman joined AOL last year from PepsiCo, where he was senior VP-communications.
He also was chief marketing officer at Breeders’ Cup, marketing communications director at National Basketball Assn., European promotions director at Kraft Foods and account supervisor at Cohen & Wolfe.
Land’s end follows the recent departure of PR hand Doug Serton from AOL.
With Land’s exit, AOL handed corporate communications duties to IR chief Eoin Ryan and expanded the role of chief marketing officer Erika Nardini to include internal communications, corporate marketing and charities.
