Yahoo’s new non-lame, totally awesome new CEO: Marissa Mayer, the 37-year-old Google veteran who long played that company’s public face, will take the helm of a company in need of a strong, smart CEO who knows what she’s doing. Yahoo has had notoriously bad luck with CEOs in recent years, recently losing Scott Thompson in a resume-padding scandal. Mayer takes over a company that’s a giant of the web, but one that’s notorious for starving its best products. (photo by Giorgio Montersino)

I want you to know how deeply I regret how this issue has affected the company and all of you. We have all been working very hard to move the company forward, and this has had the opposite effect. For that, I take full responsibility, and I want to apologize to you.
Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson • Issuing a formal apology to the employees of Yahoo, amid a scandal over the possible falsification of his academic history, as we mentioned last week. Thompson claimed to hold a degree in computer science which he doesn’t — a fact that Yahoo initially called an “inadvertent error.” Today, however, they’ve announced the formation of a three-member panel to investigate Thompson’s record. source (viafollow)

Did Yahoo’s newest CEO, Scott Thompson, lie on his resume?

  • success A few months back, Yahoo — which has had notoriously bad luck with chief executives, seemed to finally find a good one in Scott Thompson, who gave the company a relatively decent quarter.
  • problem However, there’s one nagging problem in this story — Thompson apparently had a major error on his resume, saying he graduated with a computer science degree. (He didn’t.)
  • response Thompson’s alma mater, Stone Hill College, listed him as an accounting major, leading to an apology from Yahoo, which says it was an “inadvertent error.” Was he poorly vetted? source

Yahoo tabs PayPal president Scott Thompson as new CEO

Yahoo picks the new boss: Scott Thompson, the president of eBay’s PayPal division, has been picked by Yahoo as its new CEO, replacing CFO Tim Morse who filled that role in an interim capacity. This marks the fourth CEO Yahoo has turned to in under five years; the company, once a giant in the world of search engines, has understandably suffered with the seemingly unstoppable ascendancy of Google over the past decade. Thompson faces a tall task — he’s being looked to, as chairman Roy Bostock said, “reignite innovation and drive growth” — this for a company that’s had a ton of trouble with both. source
