Shashi Seth

Shashi Seth was appointed President/Tribune Digital Ventures in May, 2013. Tribune Digital Ventures is a newly-formed unit of the Tribune Company that creates, designs, and develops new digital products and applications that take advantage of Tribune’s media assets and leverage its strength in local news, information and entertainment. Tribune Digital Ventures is located in Silicon Valley and operate as a stand-alone unit of Tribune Company.

As president of the unit, Seth is responsible for setting its vision and strategy, overseeing day-to-day operations and execution, and building a team focused on digital innovation.

Over the course of his career, Seth has spearheaded innovation, growth and success at some of the world’s most iconic digital companies, including Yahoo!, Google, YouTube and eBay. During his tenure at Yahoo, Seth and his team were responsible for a wide range of popular products, including Yahoo! Search and Yahoo Mail & Messenger.

As Yahoo’s SVP for its Connections Business Unit in 2012, Seth oversaw products that generated $2.6 billion in annual revenue and created more than $200 million in new revenue. He played an important role in the re-imagination and re-launch of Yahoo Search, including a brand new search product called Axis.

Prior to that, Seth served as Yahoo’s SVP/Search and Marketplaces, where he led the company’s search business and grew its market share.

Before joining Yahoo, Seth was SVP/Global Advertising Products and Search at AOL, where he was responsible for running the company’s search business and for supporting products such as Advertising.com, Quigo, Tacoda, and Adtech.

From 2007 to 2008, Seth was responsible for monetizing content at YouTube, where he grew revenue from zero to more than $100 million, and jumpstarted the video advertising business. At Google, Seth was product lead for search from 2005 to 2007.
