Quickbooks Online VP Hicks leaving INTUIT ?

Brayn Ray for writes: Terry Hicks is reportedly leaving Intuit after 15 years with the company. Perhaps more interesting is that Hicks has been VP and GM of QuickBooks Online since August 2013 and it would hard to name a job that has more prominence right now outside of the top executive ranks. 

Hicks has had some pretty hefty titles since joining the tax and accounting software company in February 2000. Intuit has been asked to comment, and so far has not responded. Reports are that SVP Dan Wernikoff sent a memo announcing Hicks' departure. He has had management jobs in areas that include QuickBooks, payroll, mobile ventures and small business product management. Before taking the QBO position, Hicks, was VP of global product strategy and management from July 2011 through May 2013 and he was VP and GM of global small business from July 2010 through July 2011. 

The rumor mill has not reported whether Hicks is leaving for another job or is being thanked by Intuit for his contributions. But that set of jobs looks like a pretty good start for someone who could end up running a company. With Intuit expecting to move from about 750,000 QB Online subscriber currently to 2 million in a couple of years, you'd assume that of top QBO person would be a job most people would want to keep unless something significantly better comes along.
