Inside Move: U PR head Rosen to ankle

Not Vivendi related, say insiders

Debra Rosen, the head of Universal Studio’s corporate communications department since House of Seagram bought the studio in 1995, will leave at the end of the year to form a consultancy specializing in philanthropic events.

Though Rosen’s association roughly dates from Seagram’s entrance on the scene, insiders say there’s no connection between her planned departure and the pending takeover of Seagram and Universal by French media group Vivendi. Rosen has been working on various philanthropic programs for Universal and developed a fondness for that niche, they say. She’s also expected to continue a consultancy relationship with U.

Her successor on the lot is expected to be longtime No. 2 Susan Nahley Fleishman, who followed Rosen to the studio from public relations shop Rosen & Co. in New York. That firm first came to the attention of Universal Studios prexy Ron Meyer after performing some PR chores for Universal music boss Doug Morris.

Officials declined to confirm any of the particulars.
