You must have heard by now about Marissa Mayer’s appointment to the CEO role at Yahoo! Marissa is a Google veteran and she was brought in after Yahoo! went through a series of cheif’s in an attempt to get its act together. In the language of business …”Google had eaten up Yahoo’s lunch” and Yahoo wanted to save itself from starvation.
So why are we blogging about this? What does this have to do with portable flats for women? Was Marissa Mayer a strong supporter of Fit in Clouds? That is probably not the case, even though I am sure she could use from comfortable flats after wearing heels all day! This is important because it represents the third tech company with a women CEO! That is right, we are ruling the fashion runways as well as the corner offices, all while keeping our heels high!
Last year, HP announced Meg Whitman as its CEO, then IBM announced Ginny Rometty as its CEO, and now you have Yahoo announcing Marissa Mayer as its CEO! A proud for us ladies, that have come a long way from ruling the household kitchen, to ruling some the worlds largest and most complex organizations!
