Executive summary: CEO of Yahoo!, 2012

Former President of PayPal, then briefly CEO of Yahoo! from January until May 2012. Resigned after it was revealed that his official biography had been padded, listing dual degrees in computer science and accounting, when he had earned only the latter. Patti S. Hart, the Yahoo! Board member who had been in charge of the search that resulted in his hiring, resigned a week before Thompson, who said that he had not exaggerated his credentials, since Hart had never actually requested his resumé.
