Interim Yahoo CEO Ross Levinsohn Leaves Company

Monday, 30 July 2012 05:49 PM

Ross Levinsohn is leaving Yahoo, two weeks after the company announced he lost out on the top job to Google executive Marissa Mayer, the company said in a filing Monday.

Levinsohn will leave the company effective Tuesday.

He will go with the severance payments outlined in his 2010 offer letter and 2011 severance agreement, plus an equity award of 67,000 restricted stock units and 250,000 stock options. The options have an exercise price of $15.80, the closing per share price of Yahoo stock on Friday, giving them a current value of just over $5 million.

Before joining Yahoo as executive vice president, Americas, in 2010, Levinsohn was managing director of investment firm Fuse Capital. He had previously served as president of Fox Interactive Media at News Corp, where he worked for six years.

"Ross has done a terrific job during his time at Yahoo," said a spokeswoman. "We wish him all the best."
