New CEO of Yahoo: Marissa Mayer

Google Inc's Marissa Mayer will become Yahoo Inc's new chief executive from Tuesday, a surprise pick for its third CEO in a year.

Mayer was Google's first woman engineer.
She managed its search product for years. She also led development of iGoogle, Google News, and Gmail.
In 2010, she switched to Google Maps and other local products.

Yahoo's last full-time CEO, Scott Thompson, was fired after it was revealed that he had lied about his credentials earlier in his career.
