Tim Converse to Leave Yahoo!

By Li Evans

Timconverse Yesterday, Tim Converse of Yahoo! announced he was leaving Yahoo! to persue other interests.  Tim's pretty much the Yahoo! version of Matt Cutts, but doesn't have the "Cuttletts" (I think he's probably thankful for that) who follow him around from conference to conference.

There's probably a lot of webmasters and SEO/SEM professionals scratching their head right now wondering who's going to replace him, and likely "Who's Next?" to leave Yahoo!?  It's a tough role to fill, people are comfortable and don't like change too much, so whoever does step into Tim's shoes has a big job in front of them.

Tim's new gig?  He's moving onto a startup (which he says he'll explain about later).  I can totally relate with his feelings there.  Big companies just don't offer the creative opportunities and foster that "lets work together" attitude that small start ups do, I've been there and known it's a tough feeling to find anywhere in a large corporation. 

Congrats Tim!  Yahoo!'s certainly loosing a great guy.
