Alistair Barr (Bloomberg) -- Google said cloud-computing executive Diane Bryant has left, less than a year after joining the internet giant.
"We are grateful for the contributions she made while at Google and we wish her the best in her next pursuit," a Google spokesman wrote in an email. Bryant didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.
Bryant, the most well-known and successful female executive in the $300 billion chip industry, led Intel Corp.’s market-dominating data center business until May 2017, when she took a leave of absence for personal reasons. Intel recently ousted its chief executive officer and is looking for a new leader.
Alphabet Inc.’s Google hired her in November to be chief operating officer of its cloud business. Business Insider reported her departure earlier on Tuesday.
