Thompson, who was previously president of PayPal, a unit of eBay Inc, will also join Yahoo's board.

Yahoo Chairman Roy Bostock said Thompson's primary focus will be on the core business as the company continues its strategic review process. Yahoo has been in discussions about selling off its Asian assets for some weeks."
