Yahoo Europe has lost its marketing director, Shelaine Green, who has resigned for personal reasons.
It was revealed that she resigned before Christmas and is currently serving her notice while a replacement is sought.
The search for a European marketing chief coincides with the search for someone to head up marketing at Yahoo! UK & Ireland. The UK operation, under Martina King, managing director, has been looking for a head of marketing since November.
The successful European candidate will be responsible for co-ordinating the company's marketing efforts as it aims to maintain its position as Europe's most visited portal site in the face of fierce competition from the likes of MSN, AOL and the BBC.
