Yahoo's appointment of Blake Jorgensen as chief financial officer frees up Susan Decker, who had been serving as acting CFO since December, to focus exclusively on her role as head of Yahoo's
Advertiser and Publisher Group. Yahoo! Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Terry Semel pointed to Decker's responsibilities with the Panama ad platform, new publisher partnerships and the company's
upcoming addition of Right Media.
Jorgensen, co-founder of Thomas Wiesel Partners, comes on board officially on June 4.
