Yahoo Loses Another Top Exec, This Time To LivingSocial

The exodus confinues: top Yahoo ad salesman Mitch Spolan just abandoned ship for über-hot daily deals company LivingSocial. Polan is the head of North American field sales at Yahoo and will become SVP of national sales at LivingSocial.

It’s impressive to see just how many Yahoo execs are jumping ship and how fast. This is probably even more important than strategy if CEO Carol Bartz wants to turn down the company one day.
