Susan Decker made $500,000 in salary last year as chief financial officer of Yahoo. In her new role as president, she will make $815,000 a year, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday.

Her annual target cash bonus will be 150 percent of her base salary, or $1.2 million, but her actual bonus for any year will be determined based on her job performance.

In addition to salary and bonus, Decker has been granted a stock option to purchase 300,000 shares at an exercise price of $26.20 each and 200,000 shares of restricted stock units.

Decker was named president in June in a management reorganization that saw co-founder Jerry Yang replacing Terry Semel as chief executive.
