After 14 years at Google, Marissa Mayer has jumped ship to Yahoo.
USA Today reports the company has hired the 37-year-old as its new CEO—the fifth in five years.

“I am personally very excited to see another woman become CEO of a technology company,” Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, said in a statement.
