Timothy KoogleYahoo CEO to visit

Timothy A. Koogle, chair and CEO of Yahoo Inc., has been chosen by the U.Va. Class of 2001 to be the featured speaker at Valedictory Exercises May 19 during graduation weekend.

Koogle, one of the Internet's most successful entrepreneurs, graduated at the top of his engineering class at the University in 1973. He is responsible for transforming Yahoo, originally a small operation that featured a directory of Web sites, into a global Internet communications company that offers a comprehensive network of services. When he joined Yahoo in 1995, a year after it started, Koogle developed the model that every major Internet search engine has followed: make the site free to users and support it with advertising.
