It’s hard to keep the big chair warm in Microsoft’s ad sales department, apparently.
Kara Swisher’s reporting that Carolyn Everson (left), vice president of global advertising sales and trade marketing, is leaving after just seven months in the job. Everson, a former MTV Networks executive, led Microsoft’s multibillion ad business on Bing, MSN, Windows Live, mobile, gaming, Atlas and the Microsoft Media Network, according to her official bio.
Everson replaced Robin Domeniconi, who held the spot for 18 months.
Facebook confirmed Everson’s hiring to Swisher, who noted that Everson will report to a former Google employee, David Fischer, Facebook’s vice president of advertising and global operations.
It’s a little awkward because Microsoft’s a big investor in Facebook.
But it’s not like she’s moving from Redmond to Palo Alto, though. Everson continued to live in New Jersey, according to her Microsoft bio.
