Rumors have been swirling about layoffs at Bloomberg Government. This morning three senior sales people were let go. They include President of Sales Leon Frazier, Industry Leads Sandra Baer and Butch Musselman. All three were initial hires in 2010, prior to BGov’s launch in 2011.
We’ve requested comment from Bloomberg PR.
UPDATE: This morning BGOV installed a new head of sales: Josh Eastright. His new role will be head of sales and customer support for BGOV. He will continue as Global Head of Sales and Customer Support for Bloomberg New Energy Finance. They are not reducing the head count whatsoever and are adding sales people and analysts.
