Marissa Mayer is arguably the most recognizable CEO to ever take the helm at Yahoo, and now she'll be hailed as the most beautiful.
In a new feature article on the new Yahoo boss, Vogue breaks down how the CEO balances the board room, her image, fashion, and motherhood. The article is a very interesting look into the life of one of the most successful women in America today. You can read it here.
Mayer, 38, was appointed President and CEO of Yahoo on July 16, 2012, leaving her vice president of location and search gig at Google.
Here's an excerpt from the article:
Mayer describes herself as naive—which only fuels the fascination surrounding her fourteen-year rise. Did she pile up a reported $300 million in wealth and become a CEO of one of the world’s top digital brands by accident? “I didn’t set out to be at the top of technology companies,” she insists. “I’m just geeky and shy and I like to code,” she says. “Once, Eric Schmidt [then Google’s CEO] pointed out to me that at Google, when you want to have an impact that’s bigger than just you, you move from being an individual contributor to managing a team. . . . And I was like, Oh, right, it would be nice to have an impact that’s bigger than just me. It’s not like I had a grand plan where I weighed all the pros and cons of what I wanted to do—it just sort of happened.”
