Yahoo product boss Blake Irving is out, a source close to Yahoo tells us.
This source says Irving has not been at Yahoo’s Sunnyvale headquarters this whole week, including yesterday, when 2,000 people were let go – many of them from Irving’s product workforce.
This source says the layoffs moved product people and engineers away from a central “product” org and closer to the business lines they support.
A Yahoo press representative says: “We haven’t made any announcements about executive changes. Just the layoff announcement from yesterday.
Irving was hired two years ago. He is a Microsoft veteran.
Irving has been contacted multiple companies looking to hire him, Kara Swisher reported the other day.
