It’s been a rough week for AOL, and it’s only Tuesday. Yesterday Alex Gounares, CTO of AOL, Tim Dierks, Senior Vice President of Engineering, and Erick Schonfeld, Editor-in-Chief of TechCrunch, all left the company.
Gounares had been with AOL since 2010. Since Dierks was hired by Gounares, All Things D reports that the two departures are connected. There is no word on who will replace Gounares, but Michael Manos will succeed Dierks.
