Marissa Mayer’s arrival as Yahoo’s new CEO has Yahoos hopeful. Literally. One Yahoo was inspired to create a “Hope” poster reminiscent of the iconic Shepard Fairey posters created during the 2008 presidential campaign for candidate Barack Obama.
Rather than the red, beige and blue pastels, the poster of Mayer adorning the hallways in Sunnyvale, California (as posted by Dave Dunstan on Facebook), is mainly purple, as you’d expect considering it’s Yahoo’s signature color.
Some at Yahoo are elated by Mayer’s arrival; some are just happy she gets her own lunch in the cafeteria, according to numerous Yahoo’s quoted by AllThingsD.
Mayer’s annual salary will be $1 million base pay, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. But if you add in contract incentives of bonuses, stock units and options, and a $30 million “one-time retention equity award” the deal could ultimately be worth up more than $100 million if she remains at the company for five years.
