Caryn Marooney, co-founder and CEO of The OutCast Agency, is joining Facebook in a newly-created position, director of technology communications, heading up outreach to engineers, technology influencers, bloggers, and other members of that community. She led the Facebook account for OutCast.
OutCast’s other co-founder, Margit Wennmachers, left the firm in June 2010 to join Andreesson Horowitz, a venture capital firm. The firm was sold to Next Fifteen for more than $10 million in 2005.
According to AllThingsD, Marooney has expressed confidence that “the firm was in good hands with its current team of top managers.” That team includes Alex Constantinople, partner and COO, who joined the firm just as it was rebranding late last year.
