Jeffrey Mallett was most recently the Chairman of SNOCAP, and has a rich history and proven experience in growing technology companies. As president and chief operating officer for Yahoo Inc. from 1995-2002, Mallett helped drive extraordinary growth and success for the company while simultaneously serving as an elected member of the Board of Directors.
Mallett joined Yahoo in 1995, when the private company consisted of 12 employees and had no revenue. He helped the company go public in 1996, and during his seven year tenure, Mallett helped build Yahoo into one of the most recognizable entertainment and media brands in the world. By 2002, Mallett managed a global workforce of 4,000 employees in 27 countries, with $1 billion in revenue, and had overseen more than 20 acquisitions for the company.
Mallett is currently an owner and executive committee member of the San Francisco Giants. Prior to his tenure at Yahoo, Mallett was vice president and general manager of the consumer products division of Novell, Inc. and a member of Novell's global marketing board, where he was involved with the merger of Novell and WordPerfect Corp. in 1994. He was a founding executive team member and vice president of Reference Software, an independent worldwide leader in consumer software language services, and led the company to a successful acquisition by WordPerfect in 1992. He also served as director of the Canadian-based telecommunications company Island Pacific Telephone, where Jeff drove the start-up's growth and development until it was acquired by telecommunications giant Cable and Wireless in 1987.
Mallett lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife of 19 years and their two children.
