Tinder CEO Jim Lanzone to Enter Yahoo as Chief Executive Officer

Yahoo, Inc. has reported the appointment of Jim Larzone as new Chief Executive Officer effective September 27th, 2021.  “Jim has a remarkable track record of leading and growing innovative businesses in our industry, and we are thrilled to welcome him on board. With his experience and proven management skills, we are confident Jim is the right leader to steward Yahoo through a transformational new phase that can leverage the best of Yahoo’s platform and performance to reach new heights,” said Yahoo Chairman and Apollo Partner Reed Rayman. “We also want to thank Guru for his significant contributions to the company, passing the baton following three consecutive quarters of double-digit growth. We look forward to working with him in his new capacity as an advisor to Apollo.”

This appointment comes at no surprise as Yahoo is focused on accelerating growth of its iconic properties as a privately held company backed by Apollo.  Lazone’s media experience will be leveraged to drive the next generation of innovation across world class content and advertising platforms.  “I could not be prouder of the growth and all that our team has accomplished in the last three years under the Verizon brand,” said Gowrappan. “Now as a standalone company, Yahoo is well positioned to continue to capitalize on key expansion opportunities and I am confident that Jim, Apollo and the entire Yahoo team will work together seamlessly to build on this momentum.”
