Interim Yahoo CEO Levinsohn quits after appointment of ex-Google exec Mayer
Washington, July 31 (ANI): Yahoo's interim chief executive Ross Levinsohn, who was once considered to be the frontrunner to get the top job, has decided to leave the embattled Internet firm.
Yahoo announced Levinsohn's departure in a securities filing on Monday.
The news comes two weeks after Yahoo appointed 37-year-old Marissa Mayer as its new CEO.
According to The Washington Post, retaining Levinsohn, who had been interim CEO since May, would have been one of her first big triumphs.
Levinsohn, 48, had been head of Yahoo's global media business and had pushed the company to enter into exclusive partnerships with the likes of CNBC and Tom Hanks to create original content.
Levinsohn had also personally negotiated an end to the patent warfare with social networking giant Facebook.
He ended the hostilities that former-Chief Executive Scott Thompson started in March, alleging that Facebook was infringing on Yahoo patents. (ANI)
