    Post Google Doesn’t Plan to Name New Local Head to Replace Marissa Mayer


    New Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer won't be directly replaced at Google, where until today she was VP of local, maps and location services.

    Mayer’s product list included Google Maps, Google Earth, Zagat, Street View and local search for both desktop and mobile. She is handing off those responsibilities on short notice, after abruptly resigning today.

    Yahoo is giving its new chief executive, Marissa Mayer, a compensation package worth more than $59 million US over the next several years.

    Yahoo Inc. said in a regulatory filing Thursday that Mayer will receive an annual salary of $1 million. She's also eligible for a $2 million bonus, and $12 million in restricted stock and stock options that will vest over the next three years.

    Meyer, who is 37 and was lured away from Google Inc., will also receive $30 million in the form of a one-time retention award if she stays at Yahoo for five years.

    Yahoo says it will also give Mayer restricted stock valued at $14 million to partially compensate her for forfeiting money she would have received at Google. Those payments will be staggered through 2014, with $4 million due this year.

    Wow, so young to make that much money.

    I honestly would not even know what to do with that much money.

    I wonder what's going on over at Yahoo today?

    With the launch of this forum today, for some reason I found myself picturing how Marissa was spending her day. Whirlwind of meetings I bet! Whip that team into place!
