Yahoo’s new CEO

July 17, 2012

In a Wall Street Journal article, Is Yahoo’s New Female CEO Headed for the ‘Glass Cliff’?, Christopher Shea asks whether Marissa Mayer’s appointment  is a case of of a woman being hired for “mission impossible” so that a man won’t have to risk his reputation in such a role.

I have no idea whether that is the case, but I do know that this is a job I would not want and would not accept.  For that reason, I am hoping that Ms. Mayer sees possibilities for Yahoo that I do not.
