Laid Off Microsoft Evangelist Don Dodge Becomes Google Apps Evangelist

Posted Nov 16, 2009

About two weeks ago, Microsoft Corporation laid off their “ambassador to startups” Don Dodge because of a broad workforce reduction. Dodge decided to come to Silicon Valley to do some interviewing shortly after.

Google extended an offer to Dodge and he accepted. Now Dodge will become the evangelist to Google Apps. He will be reporting to former Microsoft executive Vic Gundotra. Gundotra worked at Microsoft for 15 years with the most reaching position being the General Manager of Microsoft developer outreach efforts.
