Sandberg Joins Facebook Board

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg can now add “board member” to her long list of responsibilities at the social-media giant. “Sheryl has been my partner in running Facebook and has been central to our growth and success over the years,” Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement naming her the seventh member of the board of directors. Sandberg, who was previously vice president of global online sales and operations at Google, oversees Facebook’s business operations, including sales, marketing, human resources, communications, and more. In her spare time, she also serves on the boards of Walt Disney Co., Women for Women International, the Center for Global Development, and V-Day.
