Microsoft has fired 2 Bing Marketing Executives for misusing funds. In a statement Microsoft said “We can confirm that as the result of an investigation, Eric Hadley and Sean Carver’s employment with Microsoft has been terminated for violation of company policies related to mismanagement of company assets and vendor procurement,”.

Two Bing marketing execs, Eric Hadley and Sean Carver, have been fired for misusing company funds, according to Microsoft.

 Microsoft said its internal inquiry had found the two in violation of internal guidelines dictating relationships with outside vendors, which includes any number of partners, agencies or media companies. Mr. Hadley served as general manager, worldwide marketing for Bing, Microsoft’s search engine. He helped orchestrate Bing’s sponsorship of Jay-Z’s book launch party and Lebron James’ “The Decision.” Mr. Carver was Bing’s advertising director. Ad Age left a message for Mr. Hadley on his mobile phone and he did not immediately respond to the request for comment. A Facebook message to Mr. Carver was also not returned.
