Kristof Fahy, VP of international marketing for Yahoo, is to leave to join bookmaker William Hill, six months after taking up the role.
Fahy, who has previously worked for Blackberry and Orange, will head marketing for William Hill next year.
He was handed a promotion by Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz in June (nma.co.uk 16 June 2009), having joined as VP of marketing for Yahoo in Europe. During his time at Yahoo, Fahy played a vital role in the current £60m global relaunch of the brand following an overhaul of its home page in July.
Commenting on his departure a Yahoo spokewoman said, “Kristof has made a great contribution to Yahoo during his two-year tenure and he leaves a strong international marketing team.”
