Marissa Ann Mayer (/ˈm.ər/; born May 30, 1975)[4] is an American business executive and investor who served as president and chief executive officer of Yahoo! from 2012 to 2017. She was a long-time executive, usability leader and key spokesperson for Google (employee No. 20).[5][6][7] Mayer later co-founded Sunshine, a startup technology company.[8]

In January 2017, Yahoo! announced that Mayer would end her employment by that company and would resign from its board of directors following the sale of the company's operating business to Verizon Communications for $4.48 billion.[9][10] She did not join the newly combined company, now called Yahoo Inc. (formerly Verizon Media and prior to that Oath), and she announced her resignation on June 13, 2017.
