Go Daddy, the world’s biggest Web hosting and domain company, has
hired former Yahoo Chief Product Officer and Microsoft exec Blake Irving
to be its new CEO.
The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company said Irving would start his new
job on January 7 and will also join its board of directors. He is
replacing Kohlberg Kravis Roberts’ Scott Wagner, who served as interim CEO since the summer after Warren Adelman stepped down after only eight months on the job.
