Over the weekend the Wall Street Journal reported that YouTube hired Yahoo’s Treasurer, Gideon Yu, to take the role as the CFO. No doubt this is a critical role for a high-flier IPO.
In fact, over the past few months, YouTube has been staging a talent raid of Yahoo. The company hired away such names as Rob Solomon, Yahoo’s vice president of online shopping, and Tony Nethercutt, Yahoo’s National Sales Director.
I definitely think YouTube has enough momentum and buzz to consider an IPO, then again, so did Vonage.
