Another Vice President Leaves Microsoft, Yahoo! Still Suffers Microsoft's Grip

Rabaul - Sunken ship

Summary: Robin Domeniconi, a Vice President (VP) at Microsoft, is the latest Microsoft VP to say goodbye as the company struggles to stay relevant

Vice presidents are leaving Microsoft at a high pace and the latest example is a lady who bids adieu after a short time. Here are some more details about this departures:

After a year and a half since she arrived at Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT), ad exec Robin Domeniconi is leaving as the software giant is trying to hire MTV Networks’ Carolyn Everson to head global ad sales, AllThingsD reports, citing unidentified sources. Domeniconi, who took the job of Microsoft’s VP for U.S. Advertising Sales, Publishing and Marketing in November ‘08, had been a media and digital consultant to NY-based PE firm Avista Capital Partners.

As always, it's important to know where those people end up. Here we have another new reminder that Yahoo! staff is being bossed around by Microsoft executives (Blake Irving in this case [1, 2]).

Stata will report to Blake Irving, the chief product officer who Yahoo hired in the wake of Balogh’s departure. Balogh also held the post of EVP of products.

Domeniconi does not have a long career at Microsoft, so wherever she ends up, there is not much Microsoft baggage for her to land with. It will be interesting to see where J Allard [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] and Bach (who claims to be retiring or looking to retire) end up.
