– Several top sales reps from AOL (NYSE: AOL) recently have left the struggling Internet
company in search of greener pastures, Business Insider reports.
One of them,
according to unnamed sources, is Ali Van Putten, who earlier this year was named
a finalist for the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s Sales Excellence Award.
The report listed a dozen former sales reps who have chosen to depart since AOL’s recent
reorganization shifted many of their duties.
The defections apparently have
hurt the company, which in April reported a 58% drop in first-quarter profits
and a 23% drop in revenue.
