The new sheriff in charge of Google's sales organization has made a few changes to the lineup.
The Wall Street Journal reported that new Google sales head Nikesh Arora has moved a few executives around, and shown a few others the door, as part of a restructuring in Google's direct sales organization about a month after his elevation to the top sales spot within Google. The report said the changes involve a "small number" of cuts as well as a realignment of how Google deploys its sales force.
A Google representative confirmed that the company created a new position for Penry Price, giving him responsibility for Google's relationships with the big marketing and advertising agencies that handle key corporate accounts. Google also eliminated a geographically based sales structure in favor of one based on particular industries.
