Another Yahoo Exec Departs from BoomTown reports Jacki Kelley, Yahoo’s Vice President of Sales Strategy, has left Yahoo this past Friday. Kelley will be working at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. as the Executive Vice President of media sales.
Yahoo’s Executive Vice President Hilary Schneider sent out a company email:
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing that today is Jacki Kelley’s last day at Yahoo!. Since joining Yahoo! in May 2006, Jacki has led our advertising efforts for the travel category and has recently played an integral role helping to facilitate the integration of Yahoo!s search and display sales teams. Please join me in thanking Jacki for her contributions to Yahoo!, and in wishing her the best of luck in the next chapter of her career.
To ensure a smooth transition, Jackie’s directs will report to [Dave Karnstedt] on an interim basis. The Advertising Strategy teams have done some great work, and our commitment to their efforts will continue unabated.
We’re making great progress on integrating the Sales Team, as well as with work we’re doing to ensure greater focus across the entire Global Partner Solutions division. The work we are doing now to align around customer needs will accelerate our ability to deliver the most value for our advertiser and publisher partners.
Thanks in advance for your continued focus.
Last week we reported that Yahoo’s Chief Marketing Officer, Cammie Dunaway was leaving Yahoo as well.
