Dating app Tinder s chief executive officer, Jim Lanzone, is leaving the company to take over the top job at Yahoo, the online media company said on Friday.
This appointment was made a few days after Apollo Global Management completed the acquisition of Yahoo’s Verizon Media for $5 billion.
Lanzone replaces Guru Gowrappan, who led Verizon s media business and has now been named Senior Advisor to Apollo s private equity business.
Separately, Match Group, the parent of Tinder, named Renate Nyborg as CEO of the dating app to replace Lanzone.
Nyborg, who served as Tinder s general manager in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, is also the first woman to take the job since Tinder s inception in 2012.
