Yahoo's! Maggie! Wilderotter! jumps! overboard!

It's late September and I really should be back at school

The essential guide to IT transformation

A former Microsoft VP - who at one point was considered for the top job at Yahoo! - is stepping down from the web giant’s board of directors at the end of the year.

According to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Maggie Agnes Wilderotter has handed in her resignation and will serve out her final day on 31 December 2009.

Wilderotter previously worked at Microsoft, where she held roles as a biz strategist for the company and as a public sector veep between 2002 and 2004.

In July 2007 she joined Yahoo!’s board during its most seismic shift, when the firm was consistently harried by takeover talks from Microsoft.

The SEC filing, dated 23 September, said Wilderotter was quitting the board “to focus on other responsibilities”.

Yahoo! was dead keen to highlight that her decision to leave the web firm had nothing whatsoever to do with “any disagreement with the company on any matter related to the company’s operations, policies or practices.”

The web outfit's CEO Carol Bartz will be the only female on the board following Wilderotter's departure. ®
