One of the most familiar faces left at Yahoo, that is until today, was Larry Cornett. Larry was the vice president of search consumer products at Yahoo. He has always lead Yahoo in their search advancements over the course of the past 4 years.
Today he announced he is moving on. We knew Yahoo began mass search layoffs again, so I am not sure if this was Larry leaving or being asked to leave. I always imagined he be involved in the user experience as Bing began powering Yahoo Search.
He said he launched his own consulting business named Brilliant Forge. The new consulting firm will put him in a position to offer “advisory services to other startups and more-established companies,” he said.
