AdMob CEO Omar Hamoui Steps Down From Google

Posted Nov 1, 2010

AdMob CEO Omar Hamoui has stepped down from Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) after working there for five months. Google acquired AdMob last November for $750 million. Hamoui is leaving for personal reasons. Between November 2009 and May 2010, Google’s acquisition of AdMob was held up because of federal investigation. AdMob employees’ incentives began to vest when the deal was completed around November 2009. Supposedly AdMob’s integration into Google has not been going swimmingly. Many executives are leaving Google as a result. Anytime an AdMob employee has an idea, it has to go through many layers and departments at Google. [TechCrunch]
