Google Cloud COO Diane Bryant Departs as Intel Searches for CEO

"Google Cloud is the most technologically advanced, most highly available, and most open cloud in the world", Bryant said at the time of her hire at Google.

Diane Bryant, a former rising star at Intel who decamped to become Google Cloud's COO seven months ago, is once again taking her red stapler and heading out the door.

It's not yet clear why the high-profile executive, who had joined Google following a short hiatus for a "family matter" after leaving Intel in May of past year, is now leaving Google.


"Under Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene, the search giant has been trying to prove that it has what it takes to sell cloud computing services into the largest businesses", Business Insider reported. Previously, Bryant was Intel's Corporate Vice President and Chief Information Officer, where she was responsible for corporate-wide information technology solutions and services.

A Google representative told Business Insider that the company was "grateful for the contributions" Bryant made while at Google, and wished her "the best in her next pursuit". At Intel, Bryant was the face of the Data Center Group, which booked $17 billion in revenue in 2016 - a huge business that gave Intel a path toward growth, even as the traditional PC market has shrunk.

Google's public cloud offering is now the third most popular globally, according to research recently published by Synergy. The sentiment led Google to opt not to renew the contract, called Maven, last month.
