Another webOS Executive Heads for the Exit at HP

Hewlett-Packard’s webOS ranks continue to thin, as another executive has left the company.

The latest to depart is David Gee, an eight-year HP veteran who had been head of marketing for the webOS business. Gee is leaving to become executive VP of marketing for Infoblox, an enterprise IT company that recently filed to go public.

Gee, who left HP last Thursday, is the latest to leave the webOS unit, following the company’s move to exit the mobile hardware business and open-source the software it acquired when it bought Palm.

Other departures include Jon Rubinstein, Richard Kerris and Brian Hernacki.

In addition, HP said last week that Sam Greenblatt has moved on to another role at the company after serving as CTO of the webOS unit.

As for Gee, he had led marketing efforts for HP’s enterprise services business before taking on the webOS assignment. Before HP, Gee worked at Yahoo, Sun and IBM.
