The weak Q3 earnings report from Yahoo has us wondering, again, about Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s role on the Walmart Board of Directors. While Walmart purportedly brought Mayer on to help boost the retailer’s eCommerce performance, it’s clear that she has her hands full just trying to keep Yahoo afloat.
Walmart Director and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is profiled in the September issue of Vogue.
In this post, we raise questions about Marissa Mayer’s contribution as a Walmart director. Specifically, given the enormous challenges she faces at Yahoo, does Mayer have the time and focus to help Walmart implement a winning eCommerce strategy? And could Mayer’s aggressive recruitment of top Silicon Valley engineers conflict with Walmart’s own effort to hire the best and brightest for its Bay Area technology shop, known as @WalmartLabs?
This week, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is holding its annual meeting in Chicago. Today, thousands gathered outside the meeting to show their opposition to ALEC’s right-wing “model legislation.” Some of those present chose to highlight the ongoing role of the Walmart 1% in ALEC.
We heard Marissa Mayer’s getting ready to unveil a new Yahoo! logo. Could this be it?
