Yahoo chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen has resigned from the company, just a day after he told delegates at a Goldman Sachs technology conference that the firm would not be opposed to a deal which could see it sell off parts of the business.
A brief SEC filing issued today read as follows:
"Yahoo announced that Blake Jorgensen, chief financial officer of the company, will be leaving the company. The company has initiated a search for a new chief financial officer. Mr Jorgensen will remain with the company as its chief financial officer through a transition period."
It is unknown whether the move was forced after these comments, but it is unlikely to be coincidence that new chief executive Carol Bartz today announced a new management structure to employees.
Bartz wrote on the company's Yodal Anecdotal blog: "For us working at Yahoo, it means everything gets simpler. We'll be able to make speedier decisions, the notorious silos are gone, and we have a renewed focus on the customer."
