NetApp saw two significant executive departures last month. The first was Manish Goel, who resigned from his post as executive vice president of product operations. Goel's duties were assumed by George Kurian, senior vice president of NetApp's Data OnTap Group. Goel joined NetApp in 2002 and held several executive positions with the company over that time. Prior to NetApp, he worked at Technology Crossover Ventures, Copper Mountain Networks and McKinsey.
