Marissa Mayer’s been busy. Just a few weeks ago she had a baby, and impressively she’s finding time to shuffle around her executive team and fill the ranks with big names.

Hot on the heels of nabbing Google’s Henrique De Castro to be its new COO, it looks like Chief Revenue Officer Michael Barrett will soon exit the company in preparation for a new CRO, AdAge reports.

Interestingly enough, Barrett left Google to work for Yahoo in June. Barrett and new COO de Castro briefly worked together at Google after the search giant bought Admeld.

Yahoo did not immediately get back to us about Barrett leaving.
