Francoise Brougher, the head of sales and international at Square, is leaving the financial services company later this year, the company announced in a regulatory filing on Thursday.

Brougher joined Jack Dorsey’s company in 2013 to build out a sales and customer support organization after a long tenure at Google, where she led a $15 billion advertising sales operation. (For a deeper dive, read this profile I wrote about Brougher in 2014.)

Most of Brougher’s role will be taken over by Kevin Burke, Square’s current chief marketing officer.

Brougher will leave her role on Friday but stay on through May to help with the transition. That timeline is probably not a coincidence, since May will mark her four-year anniversary with the company, which is typically when all stock awards vest.

“We are grateful to Francoise for her longstanding commitment to our sellers and all that she did to help build and scale our company over the past four years,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “We wish her all the best.”
