InfoSpace cuts mobile content further

I wrote in today’s paper that InfoSpace’s Stephen Davis, president of mobile and online media, will leave Jan. 1 to pursue other career opportunities.

Here’s some context, via links.

Davis joined the Bellevue company in November 2005 to manage InfoSpace’s mobile entertainment business.

But since the company learned it will lose a major wireless customer next year, it’s been cutting back on mobile-content initiatives to focus on its online and mobile infrastructure businesses. As part of the restructuring, it will also lay off about 250 of its 670 employees. The position Davis holds will not be filled, InfoSpace said.

The day before Davis’s departure, InfoSpace said it appointed Bruce Easter as senior vice president and general counsel.
