Scott Thompson Also Claimed Comp Sci Degree As CTO Of PayPal
Yahoo's new CEO, Scott Thompson, is under fire for telling the SEC (and Yahoo's board) that he had a computer science degree from Stonehill College when he does not have one.
Yahoo shareholder Dan Loeb, the hedge fund manager of Third Point who is also in the middle of a proxy war against Yahoo, is leading the charge.
Yahoo's response was that Thompson's misleading bio was "an inadvertent mistake." That is an outrageous and insufficient response. Before he was Yahoo CEO, Thompson was CTO of PayPal. During that time, Thompson used the same bio Yahoo used for him with the SEC.
