For the sake of its image, if nothing else, Yahoo would no doubt like to slow or stop the constant flow of departing employees.  But it looks like the stream is as steady as ever, with an especially central person – the company’s CIO – leaving this week.

One mitigating factor: Michael Kirwan didn’t spend an especially long time at Yahoo, with his stint just starting in July of last year.

Also, we should note that Kirwan previously worked for VeriSign, which is perhaps less impressive and relevant in the search and advertising industry than employment at Microsoft, Google, or a number of other organizations.

Still, Kirwan was important.  Kara Swisher reported that his corporate bio gave him "global responsibility for Yahoo!’s Corporate Systems group, which includes the IT Infrastructure, Corporate Applications, CRM and Premium Services Infrastructure teams."

YahooSwisher also noted, "Kirwan reported to David Dibble, EVP of Service Engineering & Operations at Yahoo."

In any event, there’s no word yet on who will replace Kirwan at Yahoo.  We’ll be sure to report if/when that changes.

    Yahoo had the most talented persons in the business. Then, they sold out to some company that had no idea how important yahoo was. There was a period when no one in the world could live without yahoo. Now, who even knows what it is?

    Money follows people, not the other way around. Learn that or be flat ( broke, that is).

    To make more netizens station on Yahoo as birds of a feather flock together, I think Yahoo needs to provide a unique CMS product for end users’ blogging platform. It doesn’t matter who is going to replace Kirwan for CIO, the key point now is how to get more users to Yahoo products on internet and at the same time they also as carriers/publishers.
