Let's hope this one sticks around. Marissa Mayer, former Google VP, will be Yahoo's sixth leader in just five years. Mayer follows Scott Thompson, fired for misleading academic information on his resume, and Carol-"I've-just-been-fired-over-the-phone"-Bartz (and two interim CEOs in between).
At 37, Mayer is a relatively young CEO-and she's pregnant. Due to deliver a baby boy in October, Mayer said of the board's decision to hire her, "They showed their evolved thinking."
