Again a separate company with the original name, Yahoo now has a new CEO. Jim Lanzone will take over, who previously held the role of Executive Manager on the Tinder relationship app.
Lanzone will be responsible for managing Yahoo after the company’s last market move. Under the name Verizon Media, it was acquired by investment fund Apollo Global Management. While there are no detailed plans for the company yet, the group owns a portal that can be accessed worldwide, yahoo.com, in addition to services such as email and news about sports, technology and finance. AOL, a former content provider and portal, is also part of the package.
Before joining Match Group, Lanzone worked for US broadcaster CBS for over ten years, including head of the conglomerate’s interactive arm. He replaces Guru Gowrappan, who is now a senior advisor on Apollo’s own board of directors.
At the same time, the Match Group has already confirmed who will be the chairman of the CEO of Tinder. The chosen one is Renate Nyborg, who has served as general manager of the platform in the Europe, Africa and Middle East regions since October 2020.
Chosen for her leadership in expansion regions and in times of high service, the first woman to hold the position at the company will begin work on September 27.
