With Nielsen's acquisition of Arbitron officially closing this past Monday, a number of former Arbitron executives are exiting the company. According to multiple reports, Arbitron CEO Sean Creamer will leave at the end of 2013, while CFO Debra Delman is exiting immediately. A few other executives have reportedly exited as well, though they have yet to be identified.
The exits are unsurprising, as Nielsen CEO David Calhoun said recently that he expected over $20 million in savings due to synergies following the acquisition. Additionally, Creamer and Delman both reportedly had "golden parachute" agreements in place for if they were let go after the Nielsen sale.
In addition to closing on the $1.3 billion deal, Nielsen re-branded Arbitron as Nielsen Audio on Monday.
