Danny Sullivan, who retired three months ago from his Chief Content Officer position at Third Door Media, made an announcement on October 9 that he’ll begin working at Google in an as-yet-undefined role with the search division of Alphabet.
From his post:
My title is still being determined, but the position will be to serve as a sort of public liaison for search. The goal is to increase the connection between those at Google who work hard on search each day and the public that depends on Google for answers. I’ll be educating the public about how search works. I’ll be exploring and explaining issues that may arise. I’ll be looking at ways to take in feedback and work for solutions to improve search going forward.
June was when Sullivan left the advisory role at Third Door Media. Even then, he is still a minority stake owner in the company.
