That individual is no longer with the company. This year I have heard senior executives say that EVERY piece of software we use should be open source, unless there is a good reason not to. (They are even trying to figure out how to contribute back to open source, although in my opinion they have a lot to learn.)
It is anecdotal, but from this (and other examples) I think Google may be right about this. Open source was once the kiss of death for "enterprise", but now it is (rightfully) considered an advantage.
