Another exec leaves Microsoft for Google

At this rate within a couple more years Balmer won’t have any execs left working for him at Microsoft – another one just left to join, you guessed it, Google.

Vic Gundotra, a 15 year veteran and ‘platform evangelist’ has left Microsoft to join Google. Gundotra is the second senior exec to leave in the last month – Martin Taylor, who had been working closely with Balmer and with the company for 13 years, was responsible for promoting the Windows Live platform (Microsoft’s online hosted app service, still a work in progress) and marketing Microsoft to beat the pressure from Google.
