Jerry Yang is Yahoo’s New CEO

Yahoo’s Terry Semel stepped down as CEO and is making place for co-founder Jerry Yang to replace him, the Wall Street Journal (reg-only) reports. Jerry in a blog post says, along with the new Yahoo president Sue Decker, he’s ready for the challenge after over a decade working closely with the executive team. Jerry & Sue’s vision is...

A Yahoo! that executes with speed, clarity and discipline. A Yahoo! that increases its focus on differentiating its products and investing in creativity and innovation. A Yahoo! that better monetizes its audience. A Yahoo! whose great talent is galvanized to address its challenges. And a Yahoo! that is better focused on what’s important to its users, customers, and employees.
