Co-founder of Yahoo, Jerry Yang Leaves the Company

The Yahoo today announced that its co-founder, Jerry Yang, left his membership in the board of directors of the company. He also left the other positions he occupied in Yahoo! Japan and Alibaba Group investment firm. Yang came to lead the company as CEO between June 2007 and January 2009, when just happened to be member of the board.

About Yang output, the chairman of Yahoo’s board said only that “we share the enthusiasm of Jerry on the future of Yahoo!” and that “with Scott Thompson leading a team of fantastic Yahoos to deliver innovative products with a user experience engajadora the future of Yahoo is brilliant.”

Yahoo was born in 1994 in the form of a website called Jerry and Dave’s Guide to the World Wide Web and was just a list of links. It was only in April 1995 that the company was formed properly and renamed Yahoo!, with an exclamation. The “Dave” the page name was referring to David Filo, Yang’s friend who helped create the site at the time and remains in the company in the position of Chief Yahoo.
