Maggie Wilderotter Appointed to Yahoo!'s Board

This morning, Yahoo! announced that they had appointed Maggie Wilderotter to their Board of Directors.

It was widely expected that there would be some turnover at the Board level, following Terry Semel stepping down as CEO last month. As of now, this is only an addition. There have been no other announcements on changes of the composition to the board. However, that's likely to occur over the coming months.

Ms. Wilderotter appears to be a strong addition to the board with her relevant Microsoft experience, in addition to her telecom background at Citizens Communications, Wink, AT&T Wireless, AT&T, and McCaw.

It's a good step for Yahoo! However, of course, additional steps are required.
