AllThingsD has an exclusive report that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has just joined the Jawbone board of directors, the company behind those wireless headsets, Jambox speakers and the Up personal fitness wristbands. AllThingsD's report comes from 'sources at the Silicon Valley Internet giant'.
The Yahoo CEO has already sat in on a Jawbone board meeting, according to the same sources. Mayer had been talking to Jawbone about becoming a board member before she even became the CEO of Yahoo. Mayer will fit in well, as her previous job at Google had her working with products, aesthetics and high-level design.
Having Mayer sit in on the board will help Jawbone in more ways than one, as she'll bring her experience of scaling businesses from small to large, as well as her deep technical expertise.
