Yahoo Hires Steve Douty to Oversee Flickr (Among Other Things)
Louis Gray is reporting that Yahoo has hired former Hot Mail Veteran Steve Douty to, among other things, oversee Flickr. Douty reports into “Bill Shaughnessy, the company’s senior VP of global product management, who in turn reports to Blake Irving, Yahoo!’s chief product officer, Douty is responsible for product strategy and roadmap to rollout for the products’ current offerings and their future plans, including how they would be monetized,” reports Louis.
Wow, that’s a pretty important job and means that Douty will likely have a great deal of influence over what our “Flickr World” looks like in the months ahead.
Welcome aboard Steve and I hope you are able to accomplish great things with our beloved Flickr.
