Nuance confirmed on Monday that VP and former Swype CEO Mike McSherry has left the voice technology firm.
“We can confirm that Mike McSherry is no longer with Nuance,” a company representative told Re/code. McSherry’s last day was May 16, the company said. Mike Thompson, a Nuance executive VP, will continue to oversee all of McSherry’s projects, the representative said.
Nuance bought Swype for upward of $100 million in October 2011. As of last year, McSherry had shifted the bulk of his efforts to a new voice advertising effort.
McSherry’s departure was first reported by Seattle-area tech news site GeekWire.
