    Dating app Tinder's chief executive officer, Jim Lanzone, is leaving the company to take over the top job at Yahoo, the online media company said on Friday. The appointment comes just days after Apollo Global Management Inc closed its $5 billion acquisition of Verizon Media, which owns Yahoo. 

    Lanzone replaces Guru Gowrappan, who led Verizon's media business and has now been named Senior Advisor to Apollo's private equity business. 

    Separately, Match Group, the parent of Tinder, named Renate Nyborg as CEO of the dating app to replace Lanzone. Nyborg, who served as Tinder's general manager in Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, is also the first woman to take the job since Tinder's inception in 2012.
