So Long, Yahoo: Garlinghouse, Qi Lu, Flickr Founders Exit

Yahoo's starting to resemble an anthill that's been bombed with firecrackers

garlinghouse(2).jpgYahoo’s starting to resemble an anthill that’s been bombed with firecrackers. The latest to walk, according to reports: Communities and Front Doors SVP Brad Garlinghouse (left, of peanut butter manifesto fame), plus Qi Lu, EVP of engineering for the search and advertising technology group, and search search group SVP Vish Makhijani, who’s reportedly headed to Russian search firm Yandex Silicon Valley research facility Yandex Labs.

Additionally, Flickr founders Caterina Fake and Stewart Butterfield are leaving the company. Fake’s last day was Friday the 13th, while Butterfield will leave July 12, according to reports.

The departures come just a week after two other senior execs made their exits: Jeff Weiner, EVP Network Division, left to become executive-in-residence with venture capital firms Accel Parnters and Greylock Partners. Dr. Usama Fayyad, EVP of research and strategic data solutions, is also heading for the hills.

Amid the latest brain drain, Yahoo is rumored to have put a chill on new hires. However in recent comments to investors North American Sales VP David Karnstedt said the company continues to hire aggressively.
