Hi, what are you looking for?

Report: Arun Sarin For Yahoo Top Job; CEO For A Sale?

Update: have updated the SAI link below. 

Looks like it’s time for Arun Sarin to descend from the Himalayas…WSJ reports that Sarin, the former CEO of Vodafone, is being considered to take over from Jerry Yang as the CEO of Yahoo. FT adds that Sarin hasn’t yet agreed, but he is considering Yahoo, among other options. Sarin was at the helm of an Interent company – Infospace. More on Infospace here.

Sarin is an interesting option – at Vodafone, he spearheaded the companys entry into new markets and new products. I don’t think that’s the role he will play at Yahoo. Jerry Yang, who has had a tumultuous tenure at Yahoo, and has been criticised by shareholders for not accepting Microsofts offer of a buyout when he had the chance. It’s possible that Sarin will not be a CEO for a change, but rather, a CEO for a sale

Sarin had stepped down as the CEO of Vodafone five months ago, after spearheading its entry into emerging markets, including India. Vodafone acquired a controlling stake in Hutchison Essar, in an $11 Billion deal. 

Do read this interesting, albeit anonymous, mail on Sarin’s management style, published at SAI.
