Yahoo has hired Jill Nash to lead its communications efforts in the wake of several public and investor relations fiascos.

Nash was previously VP of global communications for Gap. She begins in January and will report directly to Terry Semel.

PointRoll named Sarah Ripmaster to be sales director in its new Detroit-area office. An account management team will be added next year.
