Seattle PI reports that Microsoft's MSN leader is leaving. David Cole, Senior Vice President, MSN and Personal Services Group, will be leaving MSN at the end of April. It is unclear if David Cole will be returning to MSN and his reasoning for leaving is also not exactly known. Todd Bishop of Seattle PI has posted the text of Cole's email about the news, making it clear that his reason for leaving is completely personal and he has the outmost "confidence in MSN's ability to win."
It is interesting that about ten-days ago, we covered that John Nicol was asked back to MSN to help build the MSN portal into "what it should be," an entertainment hub.
