Back in January, I wrote about Ash Patel, the newly appointed chief product officer at Yahoo and how he loved his mac. At that point, I thought it was pretty much a done deal. I saw his name pop-up in many different places including The Washington Post with his title.
Apparently, that memo had not reached the PR department got around to issuing a press release this past friday, saying Ash Patel, had been appointed as the new chief product officer. Or was it a slow news day? Anyway congrats to Ash and Yahoo – after all how many companies can boast a serious techie who stayed in their ranks for 10 years.
