Twitter: names former Google CFO as board chairman
(CercleFinance.com) - Twitter has said that it has named Google's former CFO as its new chairman.
The Californian social network company said late on Tuesday that Patrick Pichette - an existing board member - would replace Omid Kordestani with immediate effect.
Pichette, who has served as the company's lead independent director since late 2018, will serve as an independent board chairman.
"Given the strength and depth of Twitter's management team and Board, we believe that now is the right time to evolve our governance structure in-line with best practices," Pichette said in a statement.
According to his LinkedIn page, he was Google's CFO between 2008 and 2015, and is currently a general partner at Canadian venture capital firm inovia.
