Google’s Neal Mohan eyeing a position at Dropbox

Google’s vice president of display advertising products, Neal Mohan, may be jumping ship to join Dropbox as head of product.

The news was broken by Re/Code, though neither Google nor Dropbox have confirmed the move.

This isn’t the first time Mohan has considered leaving the search giant. He was offered a position at Twitter in 2013, but Google paid him a staggering $100m bonus to stay, which he accepted.

However, the bonus may not have been unwarranted. Mohan’s work with display ads brings Google an estimated $7bn annually.

If he joins Dropbox, Mohan would be replacing Ilya Fushman who recently moved to Index Ventures.

There has been no word yet on whether Google will fight to keep Mohan yet again.
