Few more key people who left Alphabet
Alphabet’s projects have seen some high-profile departures recently. Chris Urmson, chief technical officer for its self-driving car project left last week, while Anthony Levandowski, product manager for the program, left earlier this year to co-found a startup.
Tony Fadell, a well-known Silicon Valley executive who was once expected to play a central role in Alphabet’s hardware efforts, stepped down as chief executive in June.
