Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer resigned on Tuesday after running the company for about five years.
She resigned because Verizon’s $4.48 billion acquisition of Yahoo has officially closed, netting her a $23 million payout.
At a conference in London, Mayer said one of the things she was looking forward to in her post-Yahoo life was using Gmail again.
Presumably, as CEO of Yahoo, she had to use Yahoo Mail.
