Terry Semel joined Yahoo! as chairman and chief executive officer of Yahoo! Inc in May 2001. He has led a successful transition of the company by identifying and pursuing new opportunities within Yahoo!'s two core businesses, marketing services and consumer services. He has also assembled a talented executive team that has overseen the continued growth of Yahoo!'s global user base, a turnaround in Yahoo!'s marketing services offerings, and introduced new revenue opportunities, including sponsored search, listings, and services bundled with high-speed internet access.

Previously, Semel spent 24 years at Warner Bros., most noted for his role as chairman and co-chief executive officer where he and his partner, Robert Daly, helped build Warner Bros. into one of the world's largest and most creative media and entertainment enterprises. Like Yahoo!, Warner Bros. reaches billions of worldwide consumers through its vast stable of properties. Semel is credited with building Warner Bros. from a single revenue source generating less than $1 billion to nearly $11 billion total revenues from multiple, diverse businesses in 50 countries. Prior to Warner Bros., Semel managed Walt Disney's Theatrical Distribution division, and CBS' Theatrical Distribution division.

Semel is currently on the Board of Directors of Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation, Revlon, Inc., and the Guggenheim Museum.
