A brief item from the UK's Netimperative reporting that Karl Gregory, the ex-head of marketing for Yahoo, Search UK & Ireland is now employed at Touch Local, a UK business directory where he will be responsible for acquisition and making sure businesses connect in an effective way with customers.

I postscripted that item with news that David Mandelbrot, the former VP of Content at Yahoo Search, left the company in early November.
