Scott Moore and Al Warms are leaving Yahoo, while Jeff Dossett is joining the Sunnyvale search engine. Dossett replaces Moore, who headed up Yahoo!’s media group. Al Warms headed up Yahoo News, Tech and Education, and came to Yahoo through the acquisition of Buzztracker.
“Jeff is one of the country’s most experienced online media executives, and I’m confident he is well-suited to lead Yahoo!’s audience business to even greater heights,” said Hilary Schneider, Yahoo! executive vice president. “His understanding of consumer needs and high-quality premium programming will help ensure that we continue with Yahoo!’s reputation of inspiring audiences and attracting marketer dollars.”
Moore and Warms join the mass exodus of senior level employees leaving Yahoo in the aftermath of a failed acquisition by Microsoft and in the midst of poor earnings, layoffs and a plummeting stock price.
