Scott Galloway, the Firebrand Partners chief who teamed up with Harbinger Capital Partners to challenge family management at The New York Times Co. in 2008 and ended up on its board of directors, is leaving the board, the company said late Thursday.
Also leaving the board is Daniel H. Cohen, a director since 2007.
The Times Co. said its directors had nominated Carolyn D. Greenspon — a fifth-generation member of the Ochs/Sulzberger family that controls the publisher through super-voting stock — for election at its April 27 annual meeting. The size of the board, which had been increased by two seats when Galloway and a Harbinger representative became directors, will be reduced to 13 seats, the company said.
