Yahoo! India appoints successor to Deepak Chandnani

Darren Gocher takes over as Country Head for Yahoo! India replacing Deepak Chandnani who has resigned from that position with effect from 14th December this year. He will be assisted by Neville Taraporewala appointed as Director-Sales & Business Development with responsibility for the overall Yahoo! India's operation.

Both the appointments have come from within Yahoo only, on the expected lines as reported in our story on Yahoo! two days back. The new country head, Darren Goecher based in Australia, has worked with Yahoo! in Australasia for several years and is presently the Regional Finance Director for South Asia. His new India related charge would be in addition to his current responsibilities.

Similarly, Neville Taraporewala is from Yahoo too. He has been heading the media business at Yahoo India reporting to Chandnani. Besides being the new Director-Sales and Business Development, he will be assisting Goecher in the overall India operations of Yahoo! also. exchange4media news service had reported earlier that Taraporewala is tipped to be among the frontrunners to head the company in India. In practical terms, Taraporewala is expected to play that role as the head of the ground operations in India.

Though refusing to make any comments at this stage while speaking to exchange4media news service, he did state, "I feel excited with the new set of additional responsibilities and I'm fully committed to meet the expectations of the company. And definitely, we are going to miss Deepak who has been a guiding force for us till now."

Along with Chandnani who was with Yahoo! right from its inception in India, Taraporewala has been instrumental in the growth of the company. Yahoo currently has a subscriber base of over 27.8 million user registrations from India, a billion page views per month and multiple revenue streams. In fact, the revenue from the mobile services has grown by more than 35% in the last quarter claims the company.
