Andy Beal Departs WebSourced Over Differences

Andy Beal of Search Engine Lowdown has announced he's left his day job -- vice president of search marketing for WebSourced -- due to philosophical differences over the direction of WebSourced. His Why I've Resigned from WebSourced post doesn't provide further information on those differences. More may emerge in comments on his blog. Threadwatch has some discussion, and Barry points to another resignation from a prominent WebSourced person recently, Jason Dowdell. He also said he left due to differences with the company. WebSourced recently gained two other well known search marketers, Mike Grehan and Heather Lloyd-Martin, as covered in our past post, CGI Holding Buys More, Changing Name To Think Partnership. Both are still with the company.

Postscript: Andy has removed the post explaining his reasons for leaving WebSourced. He explains why to Threadwatch.
