75 posts and columns on Hilary Schneider
Ross Levinsohn officially starts at Yahoo today, although he has already been busy machinating and taking meetings since he was appointed North American head recently. The former News Corp. exec replaces Hilary Schneider, and enters a tumultuous job running Yahoo’s key media and advertising sales businesses. BoomTown has yet another primer for him today, but first let’s hear from Ross in his first blog post to the troops at Yahoo.
If wishes were horses, as the old proverb goes, all beggars would ride. Or, in the case of the incessant corporate drama around Yahoo: If wishes were deals, all bankers would get big fat fees. Even BoomTown has been harboring a big wish that there were some new scenario–instead of the same retreads that have been bandied about for more than a month–that was at least possible. But because making up scenarios about the fate of Yahoo is all fun and games, it goes on and on and on.
