Yahoo Names Maynard Webb Permanent Board Chairman

maynardWebbYahoo on Friday named Maynard Webb the company’s chairman.

“Maynard Webb’s leadership and guidance have been an invaluable part of our board since he joined it in 2012,” a Yahoo spokesperson said in a statement. “We are honored that Maynard will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board.”

Webb first took over as interim chairman in late April, when Yahoo announced that Fred Amoroso would be stepping down as chairman and leaving the company’s board.

Webb, a Silicon Valley veteran, was CEO of LiveOps from 2006 to 2011, and before that served as president of technology and then COO of eBay from 1999 to 2006.

Bloomberg earlier reported the changes.
