After working on the “Pacific Rim” marketing campaign, Chiodi will leave the company and join Paramount’s marketing team. Sources say Chiodo made the decision on his own, and that Erb was let go.

This marks the second major change in the department in the past month, with the company bringing in Emily Castel as its new marketing chief. Sources say both left the company shortly after she was named chief.
