Tapan Bhat

Tapan Bhat is Yahoo!’s Senior Vice President of Integrated Consumer Experiences, driving strategic vision, product management and programming for the next wave of online consumer experiences that combine core services like email, content, mobile and search to go beyond existing categories and extend across devices.

Products under Bhat’s purview as of July 2009 include Yahoo!’s home page, one of the world’s most heavily trafficked Web sites; My Yahoo!, the most popular personalized page on the Web; Yahoo! Connected TV, which brings the best of the Web to television; Yahoo! Toolbar, which was the Web’s first downloadable toolbar and is currently available in nearly 30 markets; and Yahoo! Buzz, the most popular social content site on the Internet.

Bhat has spent his career building and marketing innovative new products and businesses in the consumer software, Internet services and packaged goods industries. Bhat was the first product manager of Quicken.com and grew it to the number one finance site before leaving to start his own business, which was subsequently sold to Intuit. Bhat then managed Adobe’s consumer digital imaging and video business, developing and launching marketing-leading consumer imaging and video Photoshop products.

Bhat earned a master’s degree in business administration from Georgetown University, and a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Michigan.
