Yahoo's Marissa Mayer Gets $23M Kiss-Off

Mitch Wagner

In addition to whatever office supplies she can pilfer, Marissa Mayer will be walking away with $23 million when Yahoo closes the sale of its assets to Verizon.

Mayer will get $20 million equity, plus $3 million cash and $25,000 benefits in walking-away money, according to a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing from Yahoo on Monday.

Additionally, Lisa Utzschneider, Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) chief revenue officer, will take home a $16.5 million golden parachute, while CFO Ken Goldman will get $9.5 million, and Yahoo co-founder David Filo will net $66,415.

Yahoo is selling its Internet business to Verizon Communications Grp. Plc., and transforming into a holding company for Yahoo's Alibaba assets. The holding company will be called Altaba. The $4.48 billion deal will likely close in the second quarter

Mayer's role with Verizon is uncertain. But she won't be heading up Altaba.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
