Thread Description:

Yahoo are going great guns in Asia and undertaking some new sponsorship & advertising models and want to capitilise on their market share by having a management shuffle.

As someone who runs a small business in search I think these moves are excellent. I may be wrong though and welcome your thoughts

Forbes say it much better than I can:

Yahoo has beefed up its management team for Asia in a bid to expand its business beyond desktop services and tap emerging markets in Southeast Asia.

The portal has promoted former GM for Southeast Asia Niren Hiro to general manager, Yahoo mobile Asia-Pacific. Hiro is charged with developing Yahoo's mobile strategy beyond the computer-based services in China, India, Korea,Taiwan. Southeast Asia and Australia.

The company has also relocated former Intel executive Re/a Behnam from its California headquarters to Singapore as managing director of Yahoo Singapore and Southeast Asia. Behman, who was previously director of strategy and solutions for Yahoo's global alliances, will focus on expanding core businesses, including online advertising, search and wireless in Singapore and the emerging markets of Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
