Google Nabs Another MS Employee
Yet another Microsoft employee has left the Redmond company for its biggest rival. Vic Gundotra, Microsoft's evangelism head will join Google next year, the two companies have confirmed. Google said it had not decided what position he will assume at the company, but said he will be a valuable asset. Gundotra had spent nearly a decade and a half at Microsoft.
Gundotra follows some other high-profile Microsoft employees who have since left for Google: Adam Bosworth, a former general manager; Mark Lucovsky, former engineer and apparent witness to Ballmer's chair throwing incident; and most notably Kai-Fu Lee, former head of Microsoft's China arm.
