New Regency has parted ways with top executive Carla Hacken after just eight months. A search is now underway for her replacement, Back Stage confirmed.

New Regency president Brad Weston informed staff of Hacken's departure in a memo that offered no justification for the departure.

"I am writing to let you know that Carla Hacken, our president of production, is leaving the company effective this week," Weston wrote. "A search is underway for a new president of production to lead our very strong team and we look forward to updating you as we approach a decision."

Weston said the company wished Hacken "all the best in her future endeavors."

Hacken joined New Regency late last year from Fox 2000, a division of 20th Century Fox, where she was executive vice president of production.

During her 15-year tenure at Fox 2000 she was part of successful features such as "Walk the Line" and "The Devil Wears Prada." She was brought over to New Regency as part of a restructuring effort by founder Arnon Milchan.

Before becoming an executive, Hacken was an agent at ICM.
