Paramount Pictures spokeswoman Patti Rockenwagner is leaving

September 18, 2009 |  5:04 pm

Patti Rockenwagner is leaving Paramount Pictures after just 16 months as executive vice president of corporate communications for the movie studio.

Rockenwagner joined the studio in May 2008 from Time Warner Cable Inc., where she was vice president of communications for Southern California. She is leaving "to pursue another opportunity," according to an e-mail that Chairman and Chief Executive Brad Grey sent to Paramount staff this afternoon. Rockenwagner will stay with the studio through October, he wrote.

No immediate replacement for Rockenwagner has been named. She replaced Janet Hill, who left Paramount in 2007.

Rockenwagner declined to comment on her future plans or say why she was leaving Paramount after such a short stint.
