Former Vodafone CEO Arun Sarin is not going to become Yahoo's next CEO.
Sarin, who left Vodafone at the end of July, will tell Yahoo he is not interested in taking over the job from Jerry Yang, according to the Financial Times, which cited people close to Sarin. Yang resigned last month following intense criticism of his failure to close a deal with Microsoft. One of the reasons Sarin is declining to be considered for the position is the precarious financial situation at Yahoo.
Sarin, 54, left Vodafone after five years on the job, and his departure surprised many. At the time, Sarin said he was retiring to California to consider work in private equity.
