jennifer_dulski.jpgAccording to Yahoo, "Dulski has held a variety of roles during the past nine years. In 2002, she was the visionary behind the “Biggest Sale in Internet History,” a first-of-its-kind online shopping event that created sales lifts for retailers of up to 500%. In 2003, she was a key member of the tiger team that re-launched Yahoo! Search and she led the consumer and influencer marketing strategy behind that successful re-launch, growing Yahoo! Search market share by nearly 2 points."

Screenwerk writes that Paul's achievements in Yahoo Local are:

  • Built Yahoo! Local from scratch, growing its audience to 15 million monthly unique users since original launch in 2004
  • Grew revenue at a 60% annual rate by increasing user engagement and revenue yield
  • Developed a comprehensive local channel partner program, including a deep and enduring partnership with AT&T’s Yellowpages.com
  • Launched community platforms – like ratings/reviews, merchant-submit, user corrections, and photo upload – that have allowed millions of consumers and hundreds of thousands of merchants to submit their content and opinions into Yahoo! Local
  • Led the company’s acquisition and integration of Upcoming.org, which has recently integrated with the Yahoo! network to become Yahoo!’s social events platform
  • Enhanced a dozen Yahoo! properties – including Search, Real Estate, Travel, Autos, Personals, Flickr, Movies, etc – by integrating mapping and/or local content

Before replacing Levine, Jennifer Dulski was the VP/GM of the Autos business
