Yahoo's Flickr gets its new leader from Google. Former Zagat chief Bernardo Hernandez, Marissa Mayer's favorite, will now be the new head of Flickr.
Marissa Mayer wants to see Google again. It is partially right in terms of hiring Google faces for Yahoo. Ambitious CEO now hires her favorite Bernardo Hernandez Gonzalez as new Flickr head. Hernandez was previously working at Google as Director of Product Management and Managing Director at Zagat. Mayer has already hired Dylan Casey from Google.
Bernardo Hernandez is a Spanish tech entrepreneur who is also a founder and president of StepOne, a company that helps Spanish tech companies in their internationalization. He has announced on its Twitter account few hours ago that he will join Yahoo from tomorrow. He states, "I am very happy to say that as of tomorrow I will be leading Flickr efforts at Yahoo. Amazing beautiful challenge." But no specific designation is still assigned to him.
