Former Yahoo CEO Says His Successor Will Need Years to Turn Things Around

Nov 1, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Russ Levinsohn, the former interim chief executive officer of Yahoo!, said his successor Marissa Mayer will require years and a patient board to turn around the Web company, reports Bloomberg.

"You can’t turn that company or any company of size around in six months or a year," Levinsohn said in an interview, his first since he stepped down.

He held the CEO role for less than three months and was a candidate for the permanent position before Yahoo hired Mayer, a Google executive. Mayer is Yahoo’s fifth CEO in three years.
