Yahoo Hires Stern for Senior Partnership and Biz Dev Post

Raymond Stern

Yahoo appears to have made a significant new hire, installing Raymond Stern (pictured here) as SVP of North America partnerships and business development.

Stern has had stints as CEO at Presto Services and SVP of strategy and CMO at Intuit (INTU).

Stern alerted the world to the new job after updating his status on LinkedIn.

Stern’s role at Yahoo (YHOO) seems to be slightly broader than the person he is replacing, Jim Schinella, who was SVP for corporate partnerships.

Schinella, who is about to leave Yahoo, focused on major partners, such as big telecom firms like Verizon (VZ).
