The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Carol Bartz has accepted Yahoo's offer to become their next CEO. I have no link at the moment. Just a breaking news headline:
Bartz is currently executive chairman of Autodesk, a design software company. She formerly was CEO of Autodesk and was an executive as Sun Microsystems. She currently serves on the boards of Cisco (with Jerry Yang) and Intel (with Sue Decker).
Yahoo! stock was on the rise in reaction to the news. At the time of this post, Yahoo was at $12.38.
