There has been a small exodus of executives from WEA in the last week. Senior VPs Bob Carlton (sales) and Rose Polidoro (marketing), and VPs Michael Cohen (strategic marketing) and Helen Little (urban marketing) have left the company.

L.A.-based Carlton last year turned down the opportunity to move to WEA's new corporate headquarters in New York; he stayed on through a transition period. The other three are said to have anticipated cuts when the new owners assume control of Warner Music Group, and are each starting their own marketing consulting businesses.
