(Reuters) - New Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer's compensation package could total more than $70 million in salary, bonuses, restricted stock and stock options over five years, according to a regulatory filing made by the company Thursday.

Mayer's pay package is made up of $1 million in annual salary, as much as $2 million in an annual bonus, and $42 million in stock options and other awards, as well as $14 million in "make whole restricted options" for forfeiture of compensation from Google Inc.

Also, by including some stock grants, Mayer could earn up to a total of $20 million a year, or up to $100 million over five years, a Yahoo spokeswoman told Reuters.

As the first female Google engineer and one of its earliest employees, Mayer's net worth is already estimated to be as much as $300 million.

Yahoo's hiring of Mayer as CEO from Google earlier this week caught analysts and investors by surprise. Mayer, 37, edged out presumed front-runner and acting CEO Ross Levinsohn to become Yahoo's third CEO in a year.

Industry observers believe Mayer's selection over Levinsohn is a signal that Yahoo is likely to renew its focus on Web technology and products rather than beefing up online content.

Her appointment caps a tumultuous year at Yahoo. In May, Scott Thompson resigned as CEO after less than 6 months in the job after a controversy over his academic credentials. Thompson replaced the controversial Carol Bartz, who was fired in September after failing to revitalize Yahoo.

Thompson's total compensation at hire was valued at $27 million. He got no severance but was able to keep the $7 million in compensation he got for leaving Paypal. Bartz got more than $10 million in severance when she was fired last year.

NEW BROOM

A self-described "geek" with a master's degree in computer science from Stanford, Mayer started as CEO on Tuesday, the same day Yahoo announced weak financial results, with flat net revenue and a slight decline in second-quarter profit.

Although she was on the company's sprawling Sunnyvale, Calif, campus, she did not participate in its earnings call. Levinsohn was also absent from the call, which was led by Yahoo's Chief Financial Officer Tim Morse.

Mayer joins Yahoo as something of a celebrity, having already established herself as one of Silicon Valley's leading women, both inside and outside of the office. She is known for her love of fashion and regularly appears on the society pages for hosting parties.

In 2009 she married real estate investor Zachary Bogue --Mayer tweeted that the couple expects their first child, a boy, in October.

Despite its leadership upheaval, Yahoo remains one of the world's most popular websites, with more than 700 million monthly visitors, according to the company.

But revenue growth has stalled amid an industry wide decline in online display advertising prices and competition from Facebook Inc and Google.

导语:美国科技博客网站BusinessInsider今日撰文称,雅虎新任CEO玛丽莎·梅耶尔(Marissa Mayer)的职业生涯可谓绚丽多彩,大学毕业时曾收到了14份工作邀请,即便在谷歌工作期间,她还活跃在投资界。 

本周一,谷歌历史上首位女工程师玛丽莎·梅耶尔(Marissa Mayer)宣布辞职,离开了供职13年之久的谷歌,并将于周二作为雅虎新任CEO履新。年仅37岁的梅耶尔拥有一条不同寻常的职业道路,以及3亿美元的个人财产。

梅耶尔是一个聪慧的女人,她向总共10所大学提出了申请,结果都被录取。最终,她选择了斯坦福大学1997年,梅耶尔获得了斯坦福大学符号系统学士学位,后又获得该校计算机科学硕士学位,主攻方向为人工智能。

梅耶尔在瑞银集团位于苏黎世的一家研究实验室开始了自己的职业生涯,同时在加州门罗帕克的SRI International工作。她还在斯坦福大学教授计算机编程,2008年获得了伊利诺伊理工大学工程学名誉博士学位。

这位朋友告诉梅耶尔:“玛丽莎,你这样想都是错误的。为了做出正确的选择,你给自己施加了太大的压力。我觉得你面临许多好的选择,你完全可以从中选一个,然后去实现自己的抱负。”19996月,梅耶尔加盟谷歌担任软件工程师。她帮助设计了谷歌网站主页,创建了谷歌协作产品经理人(Associate Product Manager)项目。

随着谷歌的上市,梅耶尔的个人财富暴涨。美国名人资产净值统计网站Celebrity Networth的数据显示,梅耶尔的个人净资产约为3亿美元。2009年,她嫁给了房地产投资经理扎克·博格(Zach Bogue)。梅耶尔的婚礼众星云集,在婚礼举行前一晚,当红摇滚乐队“杀手”(The Killers)还为到场嘉宾献唱

在供职谷歌的13年间,梅耶尔担任过不同的职务,如工程师、设计师、产品经理、行政人员,推出了100多个知名产品和功能。在辞职前,梅耶尔担任谷歌本地、地图与地理位置服务副总裁,还主导了谷歌的部分收购,例如亲自参与了收购Zagats的谈判。

除了在谷歌任职外,梅耶尔还是沃尔玛董事会成员,同时还是一位活跃的天使投资人,对uBeamBrit MediaSquareMintedAirtimeOne Kings Lane等创业公司都有投资。本周一,她又被任命为雅虎CEO,再次走上了一条充满挑战的职业道路。

梅耶尔在一份声明中称:“我对能领导雅虎这家拥有7亿多用户的公司感到荣幸和高兴,盼望着能与这家公司颇具奉献精神的员工一起为全球用户和广告主带来创新产品、内容以及个性化的体验。”

SAN FRANCISCO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Yahoo Inc picked Google Inc's Marissa Mayer to become its new CEO, turning to an engineer with established Silicon Valley credentials to turn around the struggling former Internet powerhouse.

Mayer, who edged out front-runner and acting Chief Executive Ross Levinsohn, starts Tuesday as Yahoo's third CEO in a year. She hopes to stem losses to Google and Facebook Inc - which her high-profile predecessors failed to do.

Her hiring signaled the Internet company is likely to renew its focus on Web technology and products rather than beefing up online content. Mayer, who was instrumental in the birth of a major technological innovation - Google's search engine - joins the exceedingly thin ranks of female Silicon Valley CEOs.

Shares of Yahoo, worth less than half their value during its dotcom heyday, gained 2 percent to $15.97 in after-hours trading.

"It's a statement on Yahoo's part to go with a product-centric CEO choice. It's a very big commitment on the board's part to pursue a product-centric strategy," venture capitalist Marc Andreessen told the Fortune industry conference in Aspen, Colorado.

Tech companies can be turned around, he said, citing as an example Apple Inc, which had teetered on the brink of bankruptcy before Steve Jobs returned to the company he co-founded. "It's a big job that Marissa is stepping into," Andreessen said.

Mayer, 37, will assume her role on Tuesday, when the company is scheduled to report its quarterly financial results. On Monday, she tweeted that she was "incredibly excited" to be embarking on her new role.

Mayer, Google's 20th employee and first female engineer, and has led various businesses there, including the design of the company's flagship search engine.

Last responsible for Google's local and location services, she joins fellow women tech-industry corporate chieftains Meg Whitman of Hewlett Packard Co, Virginia Rometty of International Business Machines Corp and Ursula Burns of Xerox Corp.

"A lot of people did not believe that Yahoo could get someone of the caliber of a Marissa Mayer to become the CEO at this stage," said Standard & Poor's equity analyst Scott Kessler.

A YEAR OF TURMOIL

But Mayer's ascension comes as her profile at Google appeared to have diminished in recent months. Shortly after Larry Page took over the helm from Eric Schmidt, she was excluded from a group of top executives reporting directly to the CEO and granted oversight over major strategic decisions.

Her appointment caps a tumultuous year at Yahoo. In May, Thompson resigned as CEO after less than 6 months on the job as a controversy flared up over his academic credentials.

Thompson replaced the controversial and occasionally foul-mouthed Carol Bartz, who was fired in September after failing to revitalize Yahoo.

"She's going to bring in a different perspective. It's pretty clear Yahoo needs a new direction and really a new vision," said Paul Buchheit, a Google engineer who helped create Gmail and now a partner at startup-incubator Y-Combinator.

Yahoo had been widely expected to go with Levinsohn, who in his few months at the helm tried to push a strategy of forging media partnerships to beef up the company's online content.

Sources have said that he was committed to building out Yahoo's own video programming and striking more syndication deals in pursuit of ads that command higher prices.

During his months-long tenure, Levinsohn ended a patent dispute with Facebook and signed the social network onto a strategic partnership. Days after his appointment, he also ended a highly fractious episode in Yahoo's history by sealing a deal to sell as much as half of its stake in China's Alibaba, netting some $7.1 billion.

But the board may not have endorsed his media-focused, long-term plan to turn the ship around.

"I just think it was uninspired," one source said on Monday, referring to Levinsohn's strategy.

A second source close to the situation said that Mayer, who is recognized in Silicon Valley as more focused on technology than content, would try to get Levinsohn to stay with the company. A third source close to Levinsohn said he would wait to see how committed the new CEO was to pursuing a media strategy before making his decision.

"He's 'taking it like a man.' He's not happy but he's also not shocked given how the process had been dragging out," this source told Reuters. "Whether Ross stays or not depends on the chemistry with Mayer and the commitment the company is willing to make to media."

If he chooses to leave, "he won't lack for opportunities," the source said. "A bunch of people reached out prior to this and told him if he the CEO job didn't happen for him they would like to talk."

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) -- As a top executive at Google for the past 13 years, Marissa Mayer played an instrumental role in developing many of the services that have tormented Yahoo as its appeal waned among Web surfers, advertisers and investors.

Now, Yahoo is turning to its longtime nemesis to fix everything that has gone wrong while Google Inc. has been cementing its position as the Internet's most powerful company.

Mayer, 37, will tackle the imposing challenge Tuesday when she takes over as Yahoo's fifth CEO in the past five years.

The surprise hiring announced late Monday indicates Yahoo still believes it can be an Internet innovator instead of merely an online way station where people pass through to read a news story or watch a video clip before moving on to more compelling Internet destinations.

"I just saw a huge opportunity to have a global impact on users and really help the company in terms of managing its portfolio, attracting great talent and really inspiring and delighting people," Mayer said during a Monday interview with The Associated Press.

Like her predecessors, Mayer will have to come up with an effective strategy to compete against the juggernaut that Google has become and the increasingly influential force that Facebook Inc. is turning into as more people immerse themselves in its social network.

Both Google, the Internet's search leader, and Facebook have been beating Yahoo Inc. in the battle for Web surfers' attention and advertisers' marketing budgets. As Yahoo has lagged in that pivotal race, so has its financial performance and stock price. The stock has been slumping since Yahoo Inc. balked at a chance to sell itself to Microsoft Corp. for $47.5 billion, or $33 per share, in May 2008.

Yahoo shares closed Monday at $15.65, and haven't traded above $20 since September 2008.

"If she can pull this off and turn around Yahoo, it will make her legacy," Gartner Inc. analyst Allen Weiner said of Mayer. "Yahoo's iconic yodel has been missing for a long time. Her mission will be to bring that yodel back."

This will be the first time that Mayer has run a company as she steps out of the long shadow cast by the Google's ruling triumvirate — co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, along with Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt.

Although she had her responsibilities at Google narrowed two years ago, Mayer is still widely considered to among the Internet industry's brightest executives. A Wisconsin native, Mayer is a mathematics whiz with a sponge-like memory and a keen eye for design.

Mayer joined Google in 1999 as its 20th employee and went on to play an integral role in helping Page and Brin exploit their online search technology to outmaneuver Yahoo at a time when it was still the larger of the two companies. Now, it takes Google a little more than a month to generate as much revenue as Yahoo does in an entire year.

During Google's rise, Mayer helped oversee the development and design of the company's popular email, online mapping and news services. She also became a topic of Silicon Valley gossip during Google's early years while she dated Page for three years. They have since gotten married to other people.

"We will miss her talents," Page, now Google's CEO, said in a statement.

In another statement, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt hailed Mayer as "a great product person, very innovative and a real perfectionist who always wants the best for users. Yahoo has made a great choice."

Mayer becomes one of the most prominent women executives in Silicon Valley, a place whose geeky culture has been dominated by men for decades. This is Yahoo's second female CEO, though. Silicon Valley veteran Carol Bartz, 63, spent more than two-and-half years as Yahoo's CEO before she was fired last September.

Within a few months, Mayer expects to be on a maternity leave. In another interview late Monday, Mayer revealed to Fortune magazine that she is pregnant with a boy. Her due date is Oct. 7. She said she had informed Yahoo's board about her pregnancy before the 11 directors unanimously voted to hire her.

Other prominent women executives in Silicon Valley include Hewlett-Packard Co. CEO Meg Whitman and another former top Google executive, Sheryl Sandberg, who defected to a rival when she joined Facebook as that company's chief operating officer in 2008. Other women CEOs running major technology companies include IBM Corp.'s Virginia "Ginni" Rometty and Xerox Corp.'s Ursula Burns.

Yahoo picked Mayer over an internal candidate, Ross Levinsohn, who had been widely considered to be the front-runner for the job after stepping in to fill a void created two months ago when the company dumped Scott Thompson as CEO amid a flap over misinformation on his official biography.

Thompson's bio inaccurately said he had college degree in computer science — an accomplishment that Mayer can rightfully list on her resume. She earned a master's in computer science at Stanford University, the same school where the co-founders from both Google and Yahoo honed their engineering skills.

This marks the second time that Yahoo has snubbed Levinsohn, 48, who previously had been best known for overseeing the Internet operations for Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

Levinsohn had been vying for the CEO job after Bartz's firing, only to be passed over when Yahoo lured Thompson away from eBay Inc.

Mayer told the AP she wasn't looking to leave Google Inc. when Yahoo first contacted her June 18 about the job.

Her hiring threatens to alienate Levinsohn at a time when he has been steering Yahoo's recent emphasis on producing more original content and highlighting material provided by other media outlets such as ABC News and the financial news channel CNBC in an effort to persuade its website's 700 million monthly visitors to stick around longer.

"Marissa's first order of business should be convincing Levinsohn to stay," Gartner's Weiner said. "If he leaves, there will be an exodus" among the Yahoo employees working on the content for the company's website.

Mayer declined to comment on any discussions she might have planned with Levinsohn.

Even if Levinsohn and his allies leave, Yahoo should still benefit from the connections and reputation that Mayer built during her years at Google, predicted J.P. Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth.

Mayer may "be able to attract more high quality engineering talent to Yahoo, which we think is needed after several years of strategic and leadership flux," Anmuth wrote in a research note late Monday. Yahoo decided to lay off about 2,000 employees, or about 14 percent of its workforce, in April while Thompson was still CEO.

Anmuth also expects Mayer to bring in new managers as she shapes her team. Mayer will be greeted by at least one familiar face on Yahoo's senior management team. While serving as Yahoo's interim CEO, Levinsohn last month lured away another Google executive, Michael Barrett, to be Yahoo's chief revenue officer.

The terms of Mayer's contract weren't spelled out Monday. Mayer already struck it rich from the stock options that she got before Google went public in 2004.

Yahoo is set to report its second-quarter earnings Tuesday afternoon, just a few hours after Mayer starts her new job. Those numbers are expected to show Yahoo's revenue growth remains sluggish even though advertisers have been spending more money on the Internet.

Mayer said she intends to skip Yahoo's Tuesday afternoon conference call to discuss the results with stock market analysts so she can start to get a better grasp on the task ahead of her. She already has canceled vacation plans for next month.

"For me work is fun, and fun is work," Mayer said. "I am very excited about the big challenges here, and I can't wait to work on them. It's going to be very, very energizing."
