Neil Ashe, who is leaving his post as president of CBS Interactive, spoke with paidContent about what’s next both for him and his former company. Highlights:

I’ve intentionally kind of not focused on what’s going to be next.

The reality is that there are a lot of talented people at CBSi, and they’re still there.

I’m at the end of my original commitment to these guys, and I feel really good about where CBS Interactive is.

It’s always unfortunate when people lose their jobs, so I’m sensitive to that.

CBSNews.com is at an all-time high in traffic and revenue, and we’ve done groundbreaking partnerships with the rest of the properties.

If I could go back in time, what I would have done is founded Google or Facebook. The stock price bounced around. The performance of the properties did not.
