Report: LinkedIn Founder Reid Back As CEO
TechCrunch also reported that former Yahoo exec Jeff Weiner will join LinkedIn as interim president. Weiner is currently an executive-in-residence for venture capital firms Accel Partners and Greylock Partners. He left Yahoo last summer after serving as executive vice president of the Web portal's network division.
The moves follow the hiring last week of Deep Nishar, Google's Asia-Pacific director of product management, to become LinkedIn's vice president of product strategy.
Fast-growing LinkedIn has raised $103 million to date and has 11.2 million monthly visitors, according to comScore. The company has not disclosed its revenues.--Mark Walsh
