According to the Wall Street Journal, former Autodesk CEO Carol Bartz is to become the next Yahoo! boss.
At sixty years old, Bartz is no spring chicken, however the experience is clearly there. She still serves as executive chairman of Autodesk, a company she had been with over 14 years. Pro she was with Sun Microsystems.
Bartz currently sits on Cisco Systems’ board with Jerry Yang and on Intel’s board with Yahoo! president Susan Decker, who was passed over for the Yahoo! CEO role.
The news of the possible replacement has had a dramatic impact on share price, dropping by more than 2 percent.
