Yahoo Search VP Leaves for VC Firm

by , Comments

Yahoo's VP of consumer Web search Andrew Braccia has left Yahoo for the greener pastures of venture capital, joining Accel Partners this week as a principal, according to Venture Beat. Accel investments include Brightcove, Coremetrics, Facebook, Medio, and Trulia.

Braccia, who had reported to EVP Jeff Weiner, helped launch Yahoo Answers, and integrate its acquisitions of consumer-facing tools like Delicious and Flickr.

He's been replaced by Vish Makhijani, who most recently served as VP of Yahoo Search Marketing International. Makhijani joined Yahoo with Inktomi, where he was VP and GM of Inktomi Web search.

Back in December, Yahoo saw sweeping changes to its management team, creating three operating groups and shuffling top execs.
