News: Yahoo's Top Tech Guru Leaves

By - May 30, 2007

Farzad Nazem Thumb

Just was tipped to this filing from Yahoo, which declares that Farzad Nazem, the head of their Tech group, is leaving. That means of the three groups created in the re-org, only one position – Sue Decker’s – is filled:

On May 30, 2007 (the “Agreement Date”), Yahoo! Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an agreement with Farzad Nazem (the “Separation Agreement”) providing for Mr. Nazem’s resignation as Head of Technology Group and Chief Technology Officer of the Company, effective as of June 8, 2007 (the “Separation Date”). A copy of the Separation Agreement is filed with this report as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

I have sent a note to Yahoo asking about this. I can’t find any news stories referencing it yet, nor any Yahoo releases save the SEC form filed today. For now, his image and bio is still on Yahoo’s corp. page.

Wait, here’s his blog post on it on Yahoo’s Yodel blog.
