Yahoo CIO departs

Michael Kirwan is the latest executive to leave Yahoo

In another high-profile departure, Michael Kirwan, formerly CIO of Yahoo, has left the company.

The move was first reported by the AllThingsD blog on Thursday.

In a short note, Yahoo confirmed that Kirwan is no longer with the company. It said that David Dibble, executive vice president of service engineering and operations for Yahoo, will take on Kirwan's responsibilities. Dibble was Kirwan's manager, the company said.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Kirwan started working for Yahoo in July 2009. His bio does not appear to be available anymore on Yahoo's website.

Other recent notable departures from Yahoo include Hilary Schneider, who ran the company's North American business, and David Ko, who was the head of Yahoo's audience group.

Yahoo has struggled to gain momentum after a failed takeover attempt by Microsoft last year and changes in leadership, including the replacement of Jerry Yang, who founded the company and had served as CEO. Yang now serves on the board.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
