Losing a high-profile executive in a company can become a significant problem if that person takes away with him years of experience and an excellent Public Relations base. That seems to be the case with David Hantman, who is now leaving Yahoo to join the online rentals start-up, Airbnb. This first leaked out through an internal memo circulated by Hantman.

It may seem like a switch from a more lucrative job to something far less enticing but given the way Yahoo has been struggling with its financials, it would make sense for many of its personnel to jump ship. Hantman has been the deputy general counsel and VP of global public policy at Yahoo.

The internal memo which announced this switch was sent out by Hantman to Yahoo staffers, announcing the news to them. In it, Hantman stated while referring to his new job, “my job will be to help them convince governments that allowing people to rent out their own homes or apartments should not be a problem, and that in fact it is great for the economy and for the tons of people that can only pay their mortgage or rent through the extra income they get from airbnb.”

Eventually, an Airbnb spokesperson was quick to point out the veracity of this leaked memo, confirming that Hantman was indeed joining the rentals company.

From his memo, it was evident that Hantman was quite excited in joining the start-up company, deeming it one of the most successful companies in the world.
