Former Yahoo CEO Lists Beverly Hills Mansion

It's not all that surprising that Terry Semel, former CEO of Yahoo, owns such an impressive mansion. The corporate exec is said to have earned $500 million during his relatively short tenure at Yahoo from 2001-2007. Semel and his wife Jane have now listed their posh Beverly Hills digs for $12.75 million, which is likely chump change to a couple who over the last three years reportedly cashed in 18.1 of Yahoo stock options for a gain of $450 million. View the listing.
