Yahoo CEO pulls on board Citizens exec


Yahoo Inc. has added veteran telecommunications executive Maggie Wilderotter to its board.

The action marks the first addition since co-founder Jerry Yang took over as CEO of the Internet company last month.

Wilderotter currently is chairman and CEO at the Stamford, Conn.-based telephone and Internet service provider Citizens Communications Co. She also has worked for AT&T Inc., McCaw Cellular Communications Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

"Her unique and in-depth understanding of consumers, business and technology will make her instrumental in helping to provide valuable insight for Yahoo's key initiatives across the entire organization," Yang said in a statement.
