Yahoo's U.S. Chief Schneider Reportedly Exits

Company's rough ride continues. Hilary Schneider is one of three Yahoo execs about to depart, AllThingsD reports.

hilaryschneider-0034Yahoo is not commenting on AllThingsD reports, stating three top execs will soon leave the company. The site reported late yesterday that Americas EVP Hilary Schneider, who has oversight of ad sales, and David Ko, Yahoo’s U.S. head of audience, mobile, and local, are on their way out. Earlier in the week, it reported that VP of Media Jimmy Pitaro is also about to leave.

Schneider has been with Yahoo since 2006, when she joined to run classifieds. She was later named to head U.S. sales operations before being promoted again to her current role. Schneider’s lieutenant, Joanne Bradford, left last spring to join Demand Media. Schneider has filled in since that time, supposedly on an interim basis, without naming a replacement.

The reasons for her departure are not clear. According to the report, Schneider had wanted to exit Yahoo some time ago but agreed to stay on. She will reportedly stay on during a transition period.

An announcement from Yahoo is expected Friday.
