Yahoo exec to speak

Timothy A. Koogle, vice chair of Yahoo Inc., will be the featured speaker at Valediction May 19.

Koogle, one of the Internet’s most successful entrepreneurs, graduated at the top of his engineering class at U.Va. in 1973. He is responsible for transforming Yahoo into a global Internet communications company that offers a comprehensive network of services. When he joined Yahoo in 1995, Koogle developed the model that every major Internet search engine has followed: make the site free to users and support it with advertising.
