Yahoo! finds communications chief


Yahoo! Inc. has named Jill Nash senior vp and chief communications officer, the Internet portal announced Monday.

Previously, Nash was vice president of global communications at the clothing company, Gap Inc.

This appointment comes nearly two weeks after Yahoo! retooled its senior management team, ushering out Yahoo! Media Group president Lloyd Braun and chief operating officer Dan Rosensweig. Other top execs have also left the portal in the past month, including David Katz, head of Yahoo! Sports and Studios and Michael Marquez, the company's director of corporate development.
