Go Daddy poaches another Yahoo exec

Go Daddy has hired another Yahoo executive to join its senior management.

James Carroll, senior vice president of the consumer and global platform group, is to head Go Daddy’s international business, according to All Things D.

Go Daddy is of course now headed by former Yahoo Blake Irving, who has made international expansion one of his key growth strategies.

Irving hired Carroll at Yahoo too, All Things D reported.

With Yahoo apparently undergoing a shakeup under its new CEO Marrissa Meyer, it’s not impossible we might see more execs winding up at Go Daddy before long.

    The new Go Daddy employees, such as those being hired by Blake Irving, are getting equity in the company. A majority of the employees already working at Go Daddy have NOT gotten ANY equity in GoDaddy.com. These are the people who have built the company and have taken care of us for years. This may be a part of the Go Daddy employee retention issues as covered at http://bit.ly/Y7Ed9n

    We should all be happy we are covered by Executive Accounts. The hold times at regular Go Daddy phone support have been VERY high.
