Message Text: Yahoo has appointed Google's Michael Barrett as chief revenue officer as the company looks for new areas of growth under interim leader Ross Levinsohn.

Barrett will be responsible for Yahoo's advertising revenue and operations globally for the company, with Americas, EMEA and APAC regional leads reporting to him.

"Michael Barrett is regarded as one of the most successful and influential executives in media and technology, and I am thrilled to have him join Yahoo! in this critical role," said Ross Levinsohn, Interim Chief Executive Officer. "I am confident that his deep industry experience and relationships will help us drive our strategic vision, taking Yahoo!'s industry-leading position to the next level."

Barrett joins Yahoo from Google where he led the integration efforts following Google's acquisition of Admeld, Inc. in December 2011. Prior to Admeld, Barrett worked at Fox Interactive Media as Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, where he oversaw worldwide revenue for all properties including MySpace and FoxSports.com and worked closely with Levinsohn. Before that, Barrett served as Executive Vice President of Sales and Partnerships at AOL Media Networks and held senior sales positions at interactive Yahoo, GeoCities and Disney Online.

In his new role at Yahoo!, which he will assume in early July, Barrett will be part of the senior executive team, reporting directly to Levinsohn.
