Yahoo reorganizes amid shareholder turmoil

27 Jun 2008

(Associated Press via NewsEdge) Yahoo is setting up a new chain of command in hopes of restoring order after it snubbed of Microsoft takeover bid.

Under the internet pioneer's reorganization, Yahoo executive vice presidents Ash Patel and Hilary Schneider are being promoted to oversee most of the Sunnyvale-based company's products.

Co-founder Jerry Yang, who is under shareholder fire for his handling of the Microsoft bid, will remain as CEO and his second-in-command, Sue Decker, will remain as president.

This is the third time in 19 months that the company has redrawn its management chart as it tries to snap out of a financial malaise that has ravaged its stock price, jeopardized its independence and demoralized employees.
