Heads up, Yahoo watchers.  On April 1st, the company’s board of directors will undergo a change, with longtime board member Eric Hippeau resigning his post. David Kenny, the president of Akamai, will then join the group.

To first give some info on the departing member: Hippeau’s been on Yahoo’s board of directors since 1996.  He’s also served as CEO of the Huffington Post since 2009.  Now, however, he’s leaving behind both positions to join Lerer Ventures.
