Could it be that Yahoo is finding it harder to hire a new chief financial officer than it expected. Its current CFO, Blake Jorgensen (pictured) is still leaving, as the company announced Feb. 26 when he became one of the first casualties of the house cleaning done by the Internet company’s new chief executive Carol Bartz.
But the company still isn’t quite sure exactly when he will be departing the building for good. It could be as early as June 30 or any other date after that up until Sept. 1, “as mutually agreed to” by he and the company,”according to a regulatory filing Friday. One thing is certain, the former chief operating officer of Thomas Weisel Parnters who joined Yahoo less than two years ago will get $1.8 million in severance when he goes.
