Carol Bartz

Former Autodesk CEO Carol Bartz has been selected to become Yahoo’s new CEO.  The Wall Street Journal is now saying that she has accepted the offer to become the new CEO.

Bartz has led Autodesk for 14 years between 1992 and 2006.

Bartz and outgoing CEO Jerry Yang both sit on Cisco's board.  Bartz also sits on Intel's board with Yahoo president Susan Decker. She obviously has close ties with the existing management at Yahoo. Susan Decker was in line for the CEO job as well, but obviously didn't get it.
