(Newser) – Yahoo will soon name Carol Bartz as its new CEO after a two-month search for a successor to Jerry Yang, the Wall Street Journal reports. The 60-year-old Bartz served as CEO of Autodesk Inc from 1992 to 2006, and still serves as the company’s executive chairman. She’s also on the board at Cisco Systems, alongside none other than Yang, and has previously been an executive at Sun Microsystems.
