Yahoo Search VP Andrew Braccia Resigns

Yahoo loses VP of consumer search, to Accel Partners from VentureBeat reports that a major Yahoo asset has left to join a venture capital firm named Accel Partners.

Andrew Braccia was Yahoo’s vice president of consumer web search. He worked under Jeff Weiner for six years and was responsible for Yahoo Answers, the integration of the Inktomi, Overture and Alta Vista acquisitions and the purchase of and Flickr. His new job at Accel Partners will be as a principal in the firm.

Postscript: Yahoo emailed me informing me that they “recently named Andrew’s replacement as Vish Makhijani as the VP on our Search Business. Most recently, Vish was the VP of Yahoo! Search Marketing International and International Monetization. Prior to that role he was Vice President and General Manager of Yahoo!’s consumer International Search business. Before joining Yahoo!, Vish served as Vice President and General Manager of Inktomi Web Search.”
