That was quick. A year to the day from Bret Taylor’s appointment as co-CEO of Salesforce alongside Marc Benioff—the two would “lead Salesforce through our next chapter,” as Benioff put it—Taylor is departing. Benioff will once again be sole CEO. Taylor follows in the footsteps of Keith Block, who lasted 18 months as co-CEO with Benioff, from 2018 to 2020. Benioff tonight cast Taylor’s departure as a result of his ambitions to return to his entrepreneurial roots. “You can’t keep a wild tiger in a cage,” Benioff said on an analyst conference call. That’s what you call theater.
