It was a big week for Marissa Mayer, as investors cheered Yahoo’s plan to spin out its 15% stake in Alibaba.
Mayer has now made about $US500 million, and she has yet to turn 40.
She’s also become a bit of a celebrity in the tech community — a quick search on Instagram yields plenty of photos of Mayer posing with Yahoo employees and other fans at events.
One photo taken at the Yahoo holiday party has a caption that reads: “Chatting with our amazing CEO Marissa Mayer, who spent literally the entire night standing just so YAHOOs & their +1s could take pictures with her. She’s super sweet & such a trooper!”
She does poses, too.
Mayer will even take a selfie with you.
