Kinder Replaces Finnegan at HotJobs, New Title for Schneider?

Less than three weeks after SVP and GM of Yahoo HotJobs Dan Finnegan announced he'd part ways with the firm, Yahoo has hired on former SVP for Cendant's Travelport unit Jeff Kinder for the same role

Less than three weeks after SVP and GM of Yahoo HotJobs Dan Finnegan announced he’d part ways with the firm, Yahoo has hired on former SVP for Cendant’s Travelport unit Jeff Kinder for the same role. Kinder will report directly to Hilary Schneider, EVP of Yahoo’s Local Markets and Commerce and Publisher Network divisions. Travelport owns Orbitz and CheapTickets.

According to a Yahoo press release, “Kinder will lead all aspects of the Yahoo! HotJobs business, including sales, product, marketing and engineering and will interact with executive level management to drive long-term growth plans and strategies.”

Hilary_Schneider.jpgWhile Finnegan had a newspaper background like Schneider, having been replaced by her at Knight Ridder, Kinder hails from one with more connections to the travel world, in addition to real estate — which ties in a bit more snugly with the classifieds space.

Finnegan evidently was the main man at Yahoo behind the newspaper consortium. An interesting thing to note here is it looks as though Schneider’s title has changed from SVP of its Marketplaces unit (i.e. classifieds) to EVP of Yahoo’s Local Markets and Commerce and Publisher Network divisions. So, I guess we can assume she’ll be closely involved with the newspaper partners, as was also evinced by her appearance at the annual Newspaper Association of America Conference last month.
