The firm's chief operating officer joins a growing list of execs who have departed Ryan Kavanaugh's film production and distribution company this year.

In the latest example of executive turnover at Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media, Brian Edwards has resigned as the company’s chief operating officer.

Edwards stepped down after just five months in that post in early October, a spokesman for Relativity confirmed. His departure was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Other execs who have left Relativity  this year include Bill Sutman, its chief financial officer; Peter Adee, president of marketing and distribution;and Michael Joe, who had been serving as president.
