Gordon Mangione, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Security Business & Technology Unit, has left Microsoft. Per Barbara Darrow at InformationWeek:
Reached at home, Mangione confirmed that his last day was a week ago Friday. “I’m taking some time off, looking to get into a startup. There’s no rush. I’m going to parent-teacher meetings,” he noted.
Mangione, who had been vice president of SQL Server, moved into the high-profile security group in April 2004. There he assumed leadership of security products while Rich Kaplan led marketing. Both reported to Mike Nash, the corporate vice president in charge of the overall Security Business Unit.
