Yahoo Loses Cloud Chief

Todd Papaioannou will be entrepreneur in residence at Battery Ventures

Guess Yahoo is in the market for a new cloud/Hadoop chief having lost its chief cloud architect Todd Papaioannou to Battery Ventures where he will be entrepreneur in residence.

He was only at Yahoo 14 months.

According to what he told GigaOm, which broke the news, internal IT holds no allure for him. He wants to get back to the trenches selling software against the competition and eventually start his own company.

Before Yahoo, he was at Teradata for about five years and before that chief architect and director of engineering at Greenplum. So he's definitely a Big Data boy.
