SAN FRANCISCO – Yahoo Inc. named technology veteran Carol Bartz as its new chief executive Tuesday, bringing in a no-nonsense leader known for developing a clear focus — something that has eluded the struggling Internet company during a three-year slump.

The decision to lure Bartz, 60, away from software maker Autodesk Inc. ends Yahoo‘s two-month search to replace co-founder Jerry Yang, who surrendered the CEO reins after potentially lucrative deals with rivals Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc. both collapsed.

Carol Bartz is hugely smart, very savvy, and knows how to make tough decisions. She turned Autodesk from a technical driven company to a market driven company and achieved her goal of $1 billion in revenue. I am hugely inspired to see Carol take on another challenge in an entirely new area of technology. She will succeed. It will be really interesting to see how she shapes (or shakes) up Yahoo.
