Making for the highest ranking executive to leave Google since it's worldfamous IPO earlier this year, vice president of coporate marketing Cindy McCaffrey is leaving the search engine. McCaffrey has been with the company for over five years. In SIlicon Valley terms, that means that she has gathered enough stock options to stay at home knitting wool sweaters for the rest of he life, if that's her craving.
No word yet on what she plans to go do next, so a sweater knitting career isn't even that crazy of an idea.
McCaffrey is credited with Google's non-nonsense marketing and PR policy (although the SV Sleuth wished more companies would have great Christmas parties like Google throws for the media hacks every year). And more importantly, she kept Google's head cool in 1999 by deciding not to spend big bucks on a marketing campaign that likely would have sank the company like many of its fellow search companies.
