AOL's HR Chief Steps Down
Lance Miyamoto, executive vice president and head of human resources at Dulles-based AOL, said in a brief interview tonight he has departed the company. Intense speculation surfaced online that AOL was gearing up for a round of layoffs after a picture appeared claiming to show a stockpile of packing supplies at AOL headquarters.
"I have left," Miyamoto said. He said his last day was Thursday. He would not elaborate, and the circumstances surrounding his departure were not clear.
AOL, which announced last month it was moving its headquarters to New York, has gone through several rounds of layoffs in recent years.
Company executives last month said most of the 4,000 people at the Dulles headquarters would not be affected by the move of the headquarters.
Earlier this week, AOL declined to comment on the Internet speculation about layoffs.
