Google Names New Head of Asia-Pacific
Google Inc. named Karim Temsamani head of the Asian-Pacific region effective immediately, in the latest executive change at the Internet giant following the departure of Marissa Mayer to rival Yahoo Inc. last year.
Mr. Temsamani, 39 years old, replaces Daniel Alegre, who now oversees Google’s operations with its various global business partners at the Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. Mr. Alegre took up the new post late last year following the departure of Ms. Mayer, a longtime Web search executive who became Yahoo’s chief executive in July. In October, she recruited another high-ranking Google executive, Henrique de Castro, as Yahoo’s new chief operating officer.
