Dennis Woodside Tapped to Replace Tim Armstrong at Google

Dennis Woodside has been tapped to replace Tim Armstrong at Google. Woodside was formerly Google’s VP of U.K., Benelux, and Ireland. Armstrong was Sr. VP and based in New York.

Last week, AOL announced that Armstrong had been selected as their new CEO. Armstrong will take over for Randy Falco. AOL is owned by parent company Time Warner.

It’s no secret that AOL needs new direction. The company spent last year of attempting to strike some kind of merger or acquisition with Microsoft and/or Yahoo!

Time Warner also decided to split AOL into two: one part media and one part internet access. Their original internet access business has been flailing lately due to the popularity of cable and DSL subscriptions.
