Quite a number of elite names were being thrown around in Yahoo’s search for a new CEO and one of them was Hulu CEO Jason Kilar. Today, he decided to stand when the music stopped as the chairs continue to revolve around the next set of names expected to listen to Yahoo’s eventual swan song of “The One”.
“As has been reported, Jason Kilar has been a focus of the Yahoo CEO search committee. He has graciously declined to be considered,” said a Hulu spokesperson.
Yahoo has been searching for a new CEO for quite sometime.
Venturebeat reported that Levinsohn will be the top candidate considering his deal to settle the patent feud bewteen Facebook and Yahoo:
Levinsohn looks like an especially good bet because he just struck an important patent deal between Yahoo and Facebook. The two companies will end their feud on patents and even cross-license some of their patents. Now we just sit back and wait til Levinsohn is named the big man. And then we see if he can turn around the especially problematic company.
