Summary: Scott Howe and David Gosen quit the company, having gotten replacements
Microsoft said today that Scott Howe, the top executive in charge of its Advertiser & Publisher Solutions group, is leaving the company. Howe is replaced by Rik van der Kooi, CFO of Microsoft’s Online Services Division.
Indeed, there is already a replacement, but it does lead one to wondering if Howe is giving up. More importantly, a vice president from Microsoft’s marketing department is also leaving [1, 2, 3] (printer-friendly). He seems to have had enough.
Chris Lewis, the VP of interactive entertainment who will now oversee the European marketing team, suggests that Gosen has fulfilled his objective while at Microsoft.
