Just a week after Yahoo! announced Carol Bartz as their new CEO, another exec is heading out the door. Satish Dharmaraj, founder of Zimbra, an email startup acquired by Yahoo! in 2007, will no longer bleed purple, according to Kara Swisher.
Swisher rightly points out that email has been one of Yahoo's strong suits, so this loss could particularly sting.
It should be interesting to see how Bartz, with her software-heavy background, handles the replacement. What vision does she have for Yahoo! email? It will be interesting to watch, indeed.
