Internet giant Yahoo has picked PayPal´s boss Scott Thompson as a successor to Carol Bartz´s, who was sacked in September.
Thompson starts Jan. 9. Tim Morse, financial officer at Yahoo, who has been acting as interim CEO since Bartz left, will go back to his CFO role.
"He´s certainly going to have an opportunity to prove himself. It remains to be seen how desirable this job was. Whoever steps in this role is not going to have an easy time," analyst Colin Gillis said about the new Yahoo CEO.
