My company was told about this change several months ago, and we started transitioning to the vertical Google reps then.
I've found the vertical reps to be very knowledgeable and responsive - at least as much so as past agency teams.
Also, we still have a main Corporate rep when we have questions or needs that cut across verticals.
In short, I'm happy with the transition. Google's agency support is still miles better than Microsoft/Yahoo's.
