Verizon Wireless: Content Defections

Verizon Wireless has seen about five of its senior level executives in its content-data division leave over the last few months…it started with Paul Palmieri moving to join an investment firm. Now, the latest: Alex Bloom, who was the associate director of programming, is leaving to join Motricity. Among other people who have left are Peter Grubb, Matthew Gillis and Laura Liner
I am not sure this has something to do with VZW’s internal issues…it has more to do with the activity in the mobile content industry, where so many startups, getting funded, are looking to poach from bigger companies…the sign of the times, really.
