Her 12 years at the studio encompassed five 'Transformers' films.

LeeAnne Stables is stepping down from her post as Paramount's president of worldwide marketing, partnership and licensing.

Stables has spent 12 years at the studio, where, among other films, she worked on such franchises as Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible.

She headed major consumer product crossovers like General Motors’ long-running association with Transformers, BMW's global tie-in with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and American Airlines' partnership with George Clooney's Up in the Air.

In a note to her team, Stables said she will be heading to Florida to care for her 91-year-old mother, and added: "I’ve loved traveling the world, bringing global brands to our films, and working with you guys every day making huge, creative and award-winning campaigns happen. 126 movies - 5 Transformers, 3 Treks, 3 Missions and over $1 billion dollars in partner deals?? All those China trips! Crazy, fun and it flew by."

“LeeAnne is an industry trail blazer, and tireless deal maker that has delivered amazing marketing value to our Paramount films over the years," Paramount president of worldwide distribution and marketing Megan Colligan said Tuesday in a statement. "We respect her choice to leave at the end of the year, but our team will truly miss her talent, leadership and wit.”
