Kathy Savitt

Yahoo is expected to have a significant executive makeover now that CEO Marissa Mayer is in charge, and Mayer hasn't wasted any time bringing aboard C-level managers, even as longtime Yahoo executives depart. The most recent major hire is Kathy Savitt, who is set to join the company officially Sept. 14 as chief marketing officer. Savitt most recently was founder and CEO of Lockerz, and previously was executive vice president and chief marketing officer at American Eagle Outfitters. She also held executive roles at Amazon and a consultancy, MWW Savitt.
