The Internet company hired technology veteran Bartz in 2009, with the goal of bringing in a no-nonsense leader who would develop a clear vision. Bartz shook up Yahoo's management and instituted a cost-cutting program that helped boost the company's earnings. But revenue failed to grow even as the online ad market grew at a rapid clip. After more than 2 ½ years of financial lethargy, Yahoo fired Bartz in 2011.(AP Photo/Paul Sakuma)
