Nerd News Flash! Yahoo Hires New CMO, Genius Marissa Mayer….While Other CMO is on Vacation!!
I have seen some shifty moves in business. I have seen some of the nastiest business cat fights go down. We all know no one has a safe job in this economy. You may get fired the dy you get fired. It’s a low move but possible.This however takes the cake.
We shall call this move,’Business 101: Fuckery’.
Current CMO of Yahoo, Mollie Spillman, was of vacationing at the beach. She was trying to unwind from working at one of the largest internet companies in the country. While she took a moment away from the office to regain her humanity, she was replaced by Marissa Mayer.
Poor Mollie found out 10 minutes before the news was announced to the entire company. Ouch.
A source close to the situation tells us Mayer informed the vacationing Spillman of the news only ten minutes before it broke.
“She was blindsided,” said this source. Mayer and Spillman have worked closely together in the weeks since she became CEO, and the fact that Mayer was looking for her replacement never came up.
I guess there really is no rest for the weary.
