Goldman comes from Fortinet to Yahoo

Yahoo announced today that Ken Goldman would be joining the company as chief financial officer, effective October 22. Golman will be following departing CFO Tim Morse, who has been with the company since June 2009. In welcoming Goldman, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer praised his more than 30 years in financial planning and guidance, hailing him as an ideal choice "as we enter our next phase of growth."

Most recently, Goldman was CFO at Fortinet, which provides threat management technologies. Prior to that, he was senior vice president of finance and administration and CFO of Siebel Systems, which was acquired by Oracle Corp in January of 2006. He has also served as CFO at Excite@Home, Cypress Semiconductor, and VLSI Technology.

The Goldman hire continues a string of high-level executive changes at Yahoo. In July, the company brought on then-Google executive Marissa Mayer as its new CEO. In August, Kathy Savitt became Yahoo's new chief marketing officer.
