Googling Lisa Ellis

GOOGLING ELLIS: Former Sony Music Black Music EVP Lisa Ellis and Google head Eric Schmidt were spotted dining together at The Lion in N.Y.C. this weekend by the ever-vigilant editors at N.Y. Post’s Page Six, who speculated she could be part of his hunt for a president of Google's new digital music store, scheduled to launch by the end of this year. Ellis and Schmidt were joined by Ellis' ex-flame, Harold Ford Jr. The Post speculated Ellis’ digital and licensing experience from her days at Sony make her “somewhat qualified” for the job, but guessed the former music biz exec, now a founding partner at investment firm Fireman Capital Partners, isn't in the running, but is helping Schmidt brainstorm on other candidates. Google VP Engineering Andy Rubin is currently overseeing the music project. (10/12a)
