Spinning corporate doors at Yahoo
Former Yahoo chief executive was ousted as the former Web portal giant after he was found to have faked his resume. He claimed that he graduated with a computer science college degree, but one company shareholder discovered that this was far from the truth. Despite ample opportunities to correct the mistake, Thompson failed to, and was ultimately kicked out of the company. Well, he 'resigned,' but plenty of people were lining up to give him a forceful shove if he didn't go quietly.
Former Google executive Marissa Mayer jumped in a few weeks later as Yahoo's new chief executive, making her the fifth chief executive at the company in just two years. That revolving door of top bosses just keeps spinning, but hopefully Mayer can stick around for longer than her predecessors.
