Knight Ridder Digital President Dan Finnigan has left to become senior vice president of Yahoo! Inc. and executive vice president and general manager of HotJobs.com, which was acquired by Yahoo! in February.
Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Yahoo! made the announcement Monday afternoon.
Finnigan has lead Knight Ridder’s Real Cities network and has been actively involved with CareerBuilder, Knight Ridder’s joint venture with the Tribune Co.
Finnigan will be based in New York. In a statement, he said, “HotJobs is already one of the leading recruitment services, and Yahoo! is the Internet leader with the largest and most involved online audience. Together, I believe the two companies can achieve remarkable success and grow revenue and market share.”
