After just two months on the job, Groupon's (GRPN) PR boss Bradford Williams has quit, commenting tersely: "we mutually decided it wasn't a fit." Perhaps it has less to do with the fit, and more to do with his frustration over being unable to keep the company's founder and senior management from continually violating the SEC's pre-IPO quiet period rules.

    It's just my impression but it seems to me that a lot of the media have been raining on Groupon's parade ever since it announced it's intent to do an IPO [why that is the case might make an interesting story in itself]. Perhaps the negative coverage is not Williams's fault, but that could also have something to do with the company parting ways with the him, or his parting ways with the company.
