CHICAGO: Bradford Williams, who joined Groupon in early June as VP of global communications, has left the company.
Julie Mossler, the company's director of communications, confirmed that Williams' exit was a mutual decision.
Following Williams' exit, Mossler and Heather Dickinson, who is the company's director of international communications, will handle Groupon's communications efforts.
Prior to joining Groupon in June, Williams was VP of corporate communications at Yahoo.
Late last week, after Williams' exit, an internal memo in which Groupon CEO and co-founder Andrew Mason defended the strength of his company, as well as its accounting practices, circulated on the web and raised several questions, including whether it had been leaked intentionally and whether it was in violation of the SEC's quiet period regulations.
