AOL) but to date, no dice. So, in the meantime, he's in charge of sales. The results have been underwhelming. I was critical of De Castro last March when he decided to become an outside director at Target ( TGT). I couldn't quite fathom how he had the time to fly across country to Minneapolis for board meetings and also participate in the numerous meetings as part of the Nominating and Governance Committee as well as the Corporate Responsibility Committee for Target. With flaccid sales results, surely De Castro needs to be spending every waking hour thinking of and driving Yahoo! solutions rather than concerning himself with what's best for Target and its shareholders. By all accounts, De Castro is whip-smart. He can dazzle you -- in ways only a McKinseyite can -- with his brilliance. He certainly is capable of turning things around at Yahoo! and the pressure he's now under will likely further press him to more quickly demonstrate results to show he's worth every penny of last year's compensation contract.
