Ms. Arredondo has nearly 25 years of exceptional strategic and operational experience in the internet and media sectors, as well as extensive board directorship experience.

From 1997 to 2001, Ms. Arredondo was the Managing Director of Yahoo! Europe and built the team and profitable eight-country operation that drove Yahoo! to become the leading internet network in Europe. During her time there she was featured on Fortune Europe’s “Most Powerful Women’s” list, and after leaving Yahoo! she was selected by an independent jury in 2001 to top the “Most Influential Women in European Business” list for the Wall Street Journal Europe.

Ms. Arredondo joined Yahoo! from British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Worldwide where she was the Director of International Distribution, responsible for their worldwide television program licensing business covering the Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe, and previously the Director of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

She was a member of BBC Worldwide’s Executive Board and was also an executive Director of its ECM (European Channel Management) Board which oversaw the BBC World and BBC Prime television channels in Europe.

Before joining the BBC, Ms. Arredondo was at BMG Entertainment, the entertainment division of Bertelsmann A.G., where she was the Director of Strategic Planning and then the Regional Vice President of International A&R (Artists and Repertoire) and Marketing for Spain, Portugal and Latin America.
