Dennis Woodside Fills Tim Armstrong’s Position At Google

Approximately five days after Tim Armstrong left Google for AOL, Google has filled his position. reports Dennis Woodside is the successor and will be the new VP-Americas Operations at Google.

Woodside, a Googler for five years, was most recently Google’s Vice President for the UK, Ireland and Benelux. He will be transitioning into his new position over the next few weeks. Omid Kordestani, SVP-Global Sales & Business Development, said:

While we are all sorry to see Tim move on, change always brings new opportunities. We believe it’s now time not just to roll-out globally the best practices from the different regional sales teams—the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific—but also to tailor our business strategies more closely to the different situations we face in different countries (more mature versus less mature markets).
