Woah… Marissa Mayer Is The New CEO Of Yahoo!

Earlier this week, Yahoo! announced they had appointed a new CEO, Marissa Mayer. Mayer, a former GOTW, previously held the title of Vice President, Search Product and User Experience for Google. Making the jump from Google to Yahoo! seems kind of odd considering the recent success of the former company. However, it has been reported that Mayer accepted a $60 million compensation package over the next 5 years to “jump ship.” Other reports claimed she could be eligible for up to $100 million over that time including bonuses. What more? She is currently six months pregnant. This makes her the highest profile pregnant CEO in history! Needless to say, this move has received a lot of press. She is definitely a trail blazer. icon smile Woah... Marissa Mayer Is The New CEO Of Yahoo!
