Google SVP of Knowledge Alan Eustace reportedly planning to retire amidst corporate reorganization

Alan Eustace, Google’s SVP of Knowledge is apparently planning to exit the company, a new report from TechCrunch indicated today. The former HP staffer joined Google 12 years ago, and claimed a world record last year following a 135,908-foot jump that broke the record help by Felix Baumgartner.
