We’ve only heard it from one source, and it sounds strange, but apparently Yahoo’s top M&A dealman, VP Greg Mrva, has been asked by new CFO Tim Morse to “find another gig” inside Yahoo.
If the news is true, it’s a surprise — and a big deal. Greg is the guy who is supposed to be in charge of Yahoo’s plan to sell off a ton of its properties, including Yahoo Small Business, Hot Jobs, and Zimbra.
Only in late September, BoomTown’s Kara Swisher wrote, “Mrva’s new job title should be: VP of un-mergers and de-acquisitions.”
If Greg’s being asked to move on, is it because Yahoo (YHOO) is having a hard time finding buyers?
