Job Moves: Hantman Leaves Yahoo to Join Airbnb

David Hantman, deputy general counsel and VP for global public policy at Yahoo, is leaving the search company for Airbnb.

Airbnb is an online marketplace that lets users book accommodations. Hantman will be pressing the firm's case in the corridors of power.

"They have some huge challenges with a few antiquated laws in their biggest markets, so my job will be to help them convince governments that allowing people to rent out their own homes or apartments should not be a problem," he said in an email announcement.

Hantman, who spent over five years at Yahoo, is helping pick his successor. The process "will hopefully be complete soon," he said.
