It was recently announced over at ValleyWag that David Cole, head of MSN Global, was forced out of Microsoft. According to sources close to the company, it seems that Michael Rawding, Head of MSN Global Sales & Marketing worldwide has also decided to take gardening leave because he failed to get Cole's job.
This follows from the Microsoft reorganisation last year that saw MSN partnered with the Windows client team. Worryingly, we're told this isn't likely to be the end of the management cull that is attempting to make MSN more competitive with Google. The question is, will there be any execs left over at MSN by the end of this year?
