Stefan Tweraser (Google Germany) steps down in embezzlement case
Last week, Austrian magazine Format broke the news that Google’s German chief Stefan Tweraser had been indicted for embezzling € 585 000 from Telekom Austria.
Now, Google sent a press release stating that Tweraser will step down from his role at Google Germany: “Google has notified Stefan Tweraser that, in light of the indictment he is facing in relation to his work at previous employer Telekom Austria, for the time being he will step down from his role at Google Germany.”
Before joining Google in 2008, Tweraser worked as a marketing director at Telekom Austria. Apparently, the € 585 000 were kickbacks from the ad agency (earlier reports said that Tweraser himself worked at the agency).
According to VentureVillage, Alastair Bruce will succeed Tweraser as the new sales director for Google Germany.
