Marissa Mayer, America’s New Golden Girl

Marissa Mayer, new Yahoo CEOMarissa Mayer will earn USD 130M, if everything goes well for Yahoo.

Marissa Mayer, 37, who jumped on board Yahoo from Google Maps Division and key spokesperson will be earning a gross USD 130M over the five next years.

NYT leaked out that her yearly gross salary as new Yahoo Head could well top USD 17M with 1M basic, 4M bonus and 12M in stock options.

If her leadership goes well, this may sum up to 130M or more over the next 5 years… if no bubble explodes.

Marissa actually stands as the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company. The October expected babyboy will surely love that.
