In a statement on Wednesday by Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ.N), it was shared that Marni Walden who is the vice president and global media president is going to leave the company come February next year.
Walden, a senior female staff, was a huge part of Verizon’s successful purchase of Yahoo, and the creation of Oath unit by it merging with AOL.
Although she was suggested by most people to be the Lowell McAdam’s successor, she will be a strategic counselor and adviser from 31st December until she leaves.
“In a bid to explore other opportunities, she is leaving. It is in no way a response to the reports of yesterday” stated an official of the company.
Yahoo had shared that its estimation of the most massive breach ever has been tripled when about three billion of its user accounts were hacked in a 2013 information raid.
New Offices given
Verizon’s entry into the media was of late led by Walden, the company revealed. From the 31st of December, Tim Armstrong, the CEO of Oath will answer to McAdam, telematics organization to John Stratton, the president and superior vice president of the Global Operations of Verizon, Verizon shared.
“Marni assisted in the establishment of our wireless business, beginning as a sales rep and then grew into an inspirational leader, a role model to many” McAdam said.
