Yahoo Reorganizes Businesses


Yahoo announced changes to its organization aimed at improving its products, technologies and execution.

The moves support the company's strategy to be the starting point for the most users, the must-buy for the most advertisers and the platform of choice for developers.

Key elements Yahoo announced are the centralization of consumer product development to enhance the company's ability to release products worldwide; the creation of a U.S. region focused on bringing products to market for users, advertisers and publishers; formation of an insights strategy team; and enhancements to the technology infrastructure to optimize the use of data and improve coordination between product and engineering teams.

"These moves accelerate the ability of our deep and talented team to build great products, grow our audiences and improve monetization globally," said Jerry Yang, CEO. "They are designed to put us in an even better position to leverage our leading global audience and capture the opportunity we see in the convergence of search and display advertising."

The company is creating three new teams that will report to President Sue Decker. The three new teams being created, include an audience products division led by Ash Patel, who had run platforms and infrastructure -- Yahoo's technology side.

A new U.S. regional division will be led by Hilary Schneider, who had run the global partner solutions group in charge of the company's advertising. Yahoo also created an "insights strategy team," whose leader has yet to be named.

"The changes we're making today will help deliver superior global products for users and enable faster and better decision-making," said President Sue Decker. "This is a logical next step in light of our success last year in moving to a more centralized approach to developing world-class marketing products. We have planned these changes deliberately over the past several months to clarify responsibilities and to capitalize on the scale advantages while allowing for fine tuning to meet local market needs."

Yahoo! is also making changes to its technology organization, led by Chief Technology Officer Ari Balogh, to better position the company to execute on its strategic priorities. Principal changes are developing a world-class cloud computing and storage infrastructure; rewiring Yahoo! onto common platforms; and creating a stronger partnership between product and engineering teams.

"Since my arrival at Yahoo! earlier this year, we've carefully evaluated the best possible configuration of our technology group to support our business strategies," said Balogh. "I'm excited by the depth of our team which--combined with the talent we continue to recruit--will execute even better under this new structure."

In order to expand its cloud computing capabilities, the Company will form a Cloud Computing & Data Infrastructure Group, charged with developing a computing infrastructure that balances scalability with cost effectiveness. It will move all consumer-facing platform teams to the Audience Technology Group, led by Venkat Panchapakesan.

Yahoo!'s Marketing Products Division, Connected Life and Corporate Marketing groups will continue to operate as they do today.
