I hope so. If you've ever met Susan Decker or heard her speak you'd be rooting for her, too. She's not only smart and strategic, but a very effective leader. She motivates her employees to perform, and is widely praised for her candor and trustworthiness.
On Tuesday, Yahoo announced a re-org that positions Decker, currently
CFO, as head of the company's Advertiser & Publisher Group. Many observers speculate that this move positions her to succeed Terry Semel as CEO.
Shares of Yahoo fell 57 cents to $26.86 at 4 p.m. in Nasdaq
Stock Market composite trading. The stock's 31 percent drop this
year contrasts with an 18 percent rise by Google, so if she does get CEO role, she'll have her work cut out for her.
