Microsoft hires away Parallels Director of Corporate Communications

This seems a transition period for marketing executives working in the virtualization industry.

Earlier this month Virtual Iron lost its Chief Marketing Officer, Mike Grandinetti, and just last week Surgient lost its Vice President of Marketing, Erik Josowitz.
Now it’s the Parallels turn which lose its Director of Corporate Communications, one the men behind the company’s success in the Apple market, Benjamin Rudolph.

Rudolph will move to Microsoft, heading up the enterprise public relations for Windows Vista/Windows 7.
