A restructuring is on the way for the revenue side of the Associated Press, with changes coming as soon as next week as part of Jane Seagrave’s recent promotion to chief revenue officer and the creation of new business unit AP Gateway. Among the changes: paidContent has learned that Jeff Litvack, who created AP Mobile, will head product development as GM. Nick Ascheim is leaving the New York Times to be GM of the new unit, as first reported by Silicon Alley Insider. Both will report to Seagrave, who is responsible for sales, marketing, product development, products and customer support.
Ascheim was part of a batch of execs recently reassigned or promoted at NYTimes.com with the paper’s metering plans in mind. Ascheim was shifted to VP-new ventures from VP-product management. His role, if not his title, will be similar at AP.
