Mayer: “A Reasonably Easy Decision”

by Christopher Paul on July 16, 2012

I’m breaking my no NY Times Rule for this bit of breaking news: Google’s Marissa Mayer abruptly left Google to start at Yahoo. The break seems to be quick somewhat clean (although that’s debatable, I suppose). From 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.””

That’s a big ‘Eff you, Google!’ if I ever saw one.

Suddenly Yahoo! is interesting again.
