Former Yahoo! Santa Monica guy Scott Moore is heading back to his previous corporate employer, Microsoft, to run their internet business, says Paid Content, adding the news will become public on Monday.
My favorite quote in Staci Kramer’s story, echoing a quote from an earlier piece, is that corporate people don’t usually go off into start-up land, despite noises they make to the contrary. The exact quote: “othing hard and fast to it, but the longer someone has been in the
system, the less likely it is that person will leave for good–unless
they can’t find a suitable spot. Moore was at Microsoft for a decade
before he moved to Yahoo.”
Next question: What is happening with the Santa Monica content business–as opposed to the Front Doors team-at Yahoo?
