YAHOO unveiled Marissa Mayer as president, chief executive, and board member last night, its fifth boss in four years – not counting caretaker heads.

She joins the ailing web giant with 13 years of experience at Google, having started as its 20th employee in 1999. She said she was “honoured and delighted” to start in her new post as of today.
