Leslie Berland, Twitter’s chief marketing officer, has departed the company after more than a decade, following Elon Musk’s takeover.
Jean-Philippe Maheu, the vice president of global client solutions, is also exiting San Francisco-based Twitter. Neither departure has been confirmed by the company, as yet, but sources familiar with the matter have told Bloomberg that it is “unclear” whether they left voluntarily or were fired.
Maheu was seen being escorted out of the company’s offices, one of the people said.
Berland was the executive who gave Musk his first tour of the office as his $44 billion deal was finalized last week.
Berland and Maheu did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Musk has been clearing house at Twitter, firing a range of executives. CEO Parag Agrawal and finance chief Ned Segal were among the first to go. He also has been firing managers working on product development.
Sarah Personette, the company’s chief customer officer, said she resigned on Friday and her work access to Twitter was officially cut off on Monday night. Employees are preparing for further layoffs as Musk plans to drastically cut headcount.
Berland tweeted a single blue love heart earlier today.
