Yahoo CMO to depart

Share this article:
Yahoo CMO and EVP Elisa Steele will be leaving the company on Dec. 9, a Yahoo spokesperson confirmed via email.

“Elisa is leaving Yahoo as part of the plan she put in place to focus marketing at the company on revenue as Yahoo goes through this period of strategic review,” said the spokesperson.

All Things Digital reported in October that Steele sent an internal memo to employees notifying them of the company's plans to decentralize the marketing department's global team into two groups, regional marketing and corporate marketing.

The spokesperson said Yahoo's central marketing team will now report to interim CEO Tim Morse, who took over the role in September after the ousting of then-CEO Carol Bartz. The company's regional marketing team will report to the heads of their respective regions.

Steele has not informed Yahoo of what her next job will be, the spokesperson said.
 
All Things Digital first reported news of Steele's departure on Dec. 6.
