Diane Bryant, the chief operating officer of Google Cloud, has left the company after less than a year.

"We are grateful for the contributions she made while at Google and we wish her the best in her next pursuit," a Google spokesperson said in a statement.

The news was first reported by Business Insider.

Bryant joined Google in November 2017 after retiring from a 32-year career at Intel.

The move comes just weeks after Intel’s CEO stepped down over a consensual relationship with an employee.

At Intel, Bryant led the company’s data center, and Google saw her hire as a boost for its cloud computing business, which has been trying to catch up with industry leaders Amazon and Microsoft.
