From the Article:

Grady Burnett, head of Google’s AdWords division, is leaving the company for Facebook, Ad Age sibling Crain’s Detroit Business reported today. He is the fourth top ad exec to leave the search giant in recent months.

Mr. Burnett will move from Google’s AdWords operation in Ann Arbor, Mich., to Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., to head Facebook’s global self-serve-ad operation, reporting to Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg.

Just this week Google’s head of advertising-agency relations, Erin Clift, left Google for AOL, joining former Google exec Jeff Levick, AOL’s global head of ad strategy, and, of course, Tim Armstrong, the former head of North America for Google, who is now CEO of AOL.
