Apparently not everyone likes the Google Kool-Aid: The two founders of dMarc, a radio ad insertion company acquired by Google almost a year ago for $102-million, have left the company.
The gist is apparently that they didn’t like Google’s automated, no-service approach, and there had apparently been growing tension between them and the company that bought them. The dMarc folks wanted more salespeople, and Google didn’t, and that led to lower than expected revenue growth, and general dissatisfaction all around.
So much for people who thought dMarc was going to be a surprise kicker to Google earnings this year. Ain’t gonna happen.
