Yahoo vice president of EMEA Marc Bignell has decided to leave the company after three years.
Bignell took over in the top position in Europe from Nick Hugh in October, after Hugh left the digital media firm ahead of its merger with Verizon-owned AOL to join the Telegraph Media Group as the company’s first chief marketing officer.
The decision was revealed on Twitter by Yahoo UK managing director Nigel Clarkson, who tweeted a photo from Bignell’s last revenue update.
“We are grateful to Marc for his many contributions to the business,” a Yahoo spokesperson said. “Pat Scully, Yahoo EMEA’s managing director, will step in as the new vice president of EMEA for Yahoo.”
In his current role, Scully is responsible for setting direction and leading the business, sales and operations team at Yahoo EMEA’s regional headquarters based in Dublin, Ireland, as well as connecting with stakeholders both internally and externally.
Prior to joining Yahoo, he worked for Nuance Communications, Wood Group and Siebel Systems in senior roles.
