Ross Levinsohn, who was interim chief executive officer of Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) until Marissa Mayer became CEO in July, said his successor will need years and a patient board to turn around the Web portal.
“You have to give Marissa and the team that’s there the time to finish the job,” Levinsohn said in an interview with Bloomberg West yesterday, his first since stepping down. “You can’t turn that company or any company of size around in six months or a year.” Yahoo CEO Will Require Years For Turnaround [bloomberg.com]
