|Ex-Yahoo Chief Told Board He Has Cancer [online.wsj.com] |
Before resigning as chief executive of Yahoo Inc. over the weekend, Scott Thompson disclosed to the company's board of directors and several colleagues that he has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, according to people familiar with the matter.
The cancer disclosure by the 54-year-old Mr. Thompson was made late last week, as evidence emerged that appeared to contradict the CEO's assertions that he wasn't responsible for an error in his academic record, one of these people said.
The decision to step down from Yahoo was in part influenced by Mr. Thompson's cancer diagnosis, said this person.

Someone within the hiring department needs to step down as well because they obviously failed at doing their job on the most important of positions. Oh, wait, jobs at that level play by different rules.
I thought the days of businesses requiring diplomas on the wall were behind us. The best man or woman for any given job may not always be the one with the best wallpaper(diplomas), imo.

The way they're going now, Chris Chase will be promoted to CEO.

I do feel sad for Yahoo. They have had a number of poor CEOs and now this. They really are a sinking ship...
