The man who had been the public face of Google in Lenoir for almost three years has transferred to a job out of state.


Jorge Gutierrez became site operations manager in June 2018, and his last day at work in Lenoir was Friday, according to conversation Tuesday among members of the Caldwell County Economic Development Commission’s board of directors.


Google, which is based in California, did not answer requests before the News-Topic’s deadline Tuesday for information about Gutierrez’s successor.


EDC board members had words of high praise for Gutierrez’s contributions to Caldwell County’s economic development efforts. He served as the board’s treasurer and also was a member of the EDC’s executive committee.


As site operations manager, Gutierrez was perhaps the most visible of Google’s local employees, representing Google at events and coordinating its work with local organizations, including the EDC, Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, and the Caldwell County Schools.


Gutierrez was just the second site operations manager the Lenoir data center has had. He succeeded Enoch Moeller, who came to Lenoir shortly before the data center opened in 2008.


Gutierrez worked at the Lenoir data center for more than three years as a hardware operations manager before replacing Moeller.
