MSN Steals Ask.com CEO

Microsoft has named the new head of MSN, the man who just days ago was CEO of Ask.com: Steve Berkowitz. MSN takes away the head honcho of one of their major search competitors, one who has done a good job making Ask competitive and helping them grow market share.

While losing capable people is never fun, Ask immediately eleveated Jim Lanzone to Berkowitz’s old job, so they’ve now got a very good pilot running the show. I’m not too worried for them, and we’ll see if Berkowitz can bring some good results for MSN and Windows Live.
