Yahoo found new CEO from google
Marissa Mayer, a 13-year veteran of Google, is Yahoo new CEO, the company announced on Monday.
Mayer appointment comes after a revolving door of chief executives at the company including, most recently, Scott Thompson, who stepped down in May after a scandal involving his doctored resume.
Mayer, 37, was employee number 20 at Google and was a crucial asset to the search giant, introducing more than 100 features and products to the site during her tenure. In October 2010, Mayer, who held the title VP of Search Product, began overseeing location and local services at the company.
An engineer by trade, Mayer was among the top echelon at Google with access to company co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Also, Yahoo disclosed details of its new chief executive compensation package in a regulatory filing on Thursday. She will get a total of $129 million over five years - if she is able to get the company growing.
