Yahoo’s Mayer First Woman to Top Fortune’s 40 Under 40

Mayer beats out Zuckerberg for top spot

   

The new Fortune edition of its ‘40 under 40 list’ includes several tech moguls including Yahoo (YHOO) CEO Marissa Mayer.

CNET reports that the 38-year-old executive came out at the top of the list, beating out other young CEOs such as Square’s Jack Dorsey and Facebook (GOOG) founder Mark Zuckerberg. Mayer is the first woman to top Fortune’s list and part of her place there is thanks to the recent success of a resurgent Yahoo.

She stresses that Yahoo’s comeback is not complete and they are quickly becoming a major internet force once again. Fortune added that since Mayer became CEO in June 2012, the company’s stock has been through the roofs, enjoying an 86% increase over that span.
