Yahoo Chief Product Head Blake Irving Resigns

Posted on Apr 6 2012 - 5:14am by Editorial Staff

As expected, Yahoo’s turmoil seems not to be ending soon; the company yesterday announced that it would be laying off 2,000 employees as a part of restructuring effort and now AllThingsD reporting that company’s Chief Product Officer Blake Irving has resigned.  The move comes as the tensions lying between Irving and Thompson, with non-agreement over cutting the number of jobs with many of which targeted departments Irving himself oversaw.

According to AllThingsD, the departure had been planned well in advance, with another restructuring set to be announced next week that will see the company’s product division thoroughly reshuffled. A Yahoo spokesperson confirmed the departure, telling AllThingsD that “Yahoo wishes him all the success in the future.”
