According to reports, Google’s most prominent female executive just jumped ship and…wait for it…will become Yahoo’s new CEO!
Wowzas! Did anyone see that coming?
Reports are surfacing from credible sources, including the New York Times…
Ms. Mayer resigned from Google on Monday afternoon by telephone. She starts at Yahoo on Tuesday. Ms. Mayer will also join Yahoo’s board.
In an interview, Ms. Mayer said she “had an amazing time at Google,” where she has worked for the past 13 years, but that ultimately “it was a reasonably easy decision” to take the top job at Yahoo. She said Yahoo is “one of the best brands on the Internet.”
