Mike Kail has joined Yahoo as the company’s new chief information officer and SVP of infrastructure. In the role, he will oversee Yahoo’s IT and data center operations, and will report to CEO Marissa Mayer. Kail comes to Yahoo from Netflix, where he served as VP of IT operations.
News of Kail’s appointment comes a day after Cablevision announced the hiring of David Dibble, who until last year was in charge of Yahoo’s global infrastructure.
