Yahoo Corporate Partnership SVP Schinella Departing


Another high-ranking Yahoo exec is leaving–this time, Jim Schinella, the company’s SVP for corporate partnerships.

Sources said that Schinella (pictured here) announced the move internally recently, telling staff he would stay on until the end of the year.

Located in New York, he has been focused on big Yahoo (YHOO) partners such as big telecom firms like Verizon (VZ).

Schinella joined Yahoo in 2003 and left in 2005, after becoming its global VP of business development.

He returned in 2007, as Yahoo said at the time, to focus on “proactively identifying strategic partnership opportunities that align with Yahoo!’s brand and leverage the company’s broad product offerings.”
