YouTube VP Of Content Tom Pickett Leaves Company
The Wall Street Journal reported last Friday that YouTube’s Vice President Tom Pickett had left the company.
“Tom has played an important role over the last seven years growing YouTube’s operations and content partnerships organizations,” YouTube said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal, “The strong team he has helped build will continue to focus on making our partners as successful as possible.”
As Vice President of YouTube Content, Pickett’s responsibilities included user policy and operations, overseeing YouTube’s Next Lab and YouTube Spaces, as well as managing business development and strategic partnerships for Entertainment and Music.
The Wall Street Journal report did not include details on where Pickett was going, only claiming he told YouTube employees he was taking a chief executive role at another company. According to the Wall Street Journal, more than a dozen top managers and executives have left YouTube this year.
