Before coming to Yahoo, Hernández managed Google’s Zagat property.
AllThingsD.com reports that Hernández has actually been at Yahoo for a number of weeks, “…but did not have a specific role until now.”
Hernández’s first Internet venture idealista.com, has grown to become Spain’s leading real estate online portal. He has acted as a Business Angel investor for a number of startups, including Floresfrecas.com, Planetaki.com, and the leading social network in Spain, Tuenti.com. He was hired by Google in 2005.
