CEO Search At Yahoo! Commences

Posted on Monday, Nov 17th 2008

Jerry Yang is stepping down.

Here are the candidates according to Kara Swisher:

“While Yahoo’s board has some execs in mind to become CEO, obvious candidates include News Corp. COO Peter Chernin, as well as former AOL head Jon Miller, former eBay CEO Meg Whitman and former Yahoo COO Dan Rosensweig.

BoomTown would also throw in former Microsoft exec Kevin Johnson, who is now CEO of Juniper Networks, who led the software giant’s abandoned takeover bid against Yahoo earlier this year.”

I would look for someone who has turnaround experience, which none of the above do; hence, I am not convinced about any of the choices.

My strategy for the turnaround remains the same: focus on Web 3.0 and verticalization.
