Alma Whitten to be replaced by Lawrence You in coming months
Google's first Director of Privacy is stepping down from the role, after two and a half years in the job. Installed in the position after Google admitted to picking up Wi-Fi data through its Street View cars, Alma Whitten will continue as privacy director for a few more months until the transition to new team leader Lawrence You is complete, reports Forbes.
Lawrence You, Whitten's replacement, has spent eight years working for Google from Mountain View, instead of the London office Whitten currently resides.
It is not clear if Whitten is moving to another part of the company or departing entirely.
