David Drummond will be leaving Alphabet on January 31st due to sexual misconduct claims and investigation cover-ups. A board investigation has been looking into the company’s handling that followed the claims made against Drummond for having inappropriate relationships with employees. Drummond said he is retiring after careful consideration, and a spokesperson for the company said he will not be receiving an exit package. This comes shortly after Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin decided to step down from executive roles a month prior.
