Who will be the new face of Yahoo in the advertising world? That's one of the most common questions in ad industry circles these days.
Over the last couple of months, Yahoo has been looking to hire a new exec-VP for its Americas business, with the help of exec search firm Spencer Stuart. This is the job that Ross Levinsohn once held and is especially crucial considering that Yahoo's relationship with ad agencies has seen better days.
