Alphabet's drone division drops senior managers

Wednesday 9 November 2016 | 14:58 CET | News
Two senior executives have left the Project Wing drone-delivery programme of Google parent Alphabet due to infighting on its team, according to unnamed sources cited by the Wall Street Journal. The project's chief, Dave Vos, and its top commercial executive, Sean Mullaney, left the division last month due in large part to conflict between the engineering and commercial teams, said the sources. Alphabet also issued notices to several more Project Wing workers, giving them 90 days to find other positions within Alphabet, according to one source.
