    According to VentureBeat today (hat tip Bill Hartzer), Marrissa was lured away because she was passed over many times at G an never made it to SVP. Nonetheless she walked out of Google with a net worth of $330 million. Who says there’s no money in parking?

    Of course she knows that which is why her first acquisition might be in the Caymans and the addition of new TLDs makes the core business worth all the much more.
