Yahoo’s former communications head, Brad Williams, will join Verisign, PRWeek‘s Aarti Shah reports. Williams was laid off from Yahoo this past April, after running PR for a few months after then Yahoo PR head Jill Nash left in February of 2009.
Prior to Yahoo, Williams worked at eBay. Current Yahoo CMO Elisa Steele named Eric Brown SVP of Global Communications this past June. The two had previously worked together at NetApp. For those keeping score at home, that’s three different PR heads for Yahoo in the last year.
