According to CNET, former Googler Mayer had hired De Castro for Yahoo offering a fat contract, which was touted as the biggest golden parachute packages ever. In an explanatory memo to staff, Mayer said that she made the difficult decision that COO, De Castro, should leave the company and appreciated his contributions and wished him the best in his future endeavors.
Forbes has calculated that during his brief tenure at Yahoo, De Castro pulled down 244,000 dollars-a-day. His total compensation, apart from the additional goodies in the parachute package, was $39.2 million, higher than Mayer s $36.6 million, the report added.
