Neil Ashe Speaks About Leaving CBS Interactive

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.
