By David Cohen 

Social marketing solutions provider SocialCode reached into Facebook’s executive ranks for its latest hire, tapping Bill Masterson, a former sales director for the social network, as its new chief revenue officer.

While with Facebook, Masterson led a sales team that created custom social experience for Fortune 100 brands. Prior to the social network, he served as vice president of sales at Clickable, and he led direct sales efforts for the commerce and analytics team at Google.

In his new role, he will help drive growth of SocialCode’s social ad buying and intelligence platform, which provides marketing and analytics services across Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms.

SocialCode CEO Laura O’Shaughnessy said:

We know that brands that take a sophisticated approach to social media have a huge advantage over their competitors. Bill’s deep experience with marketing technology will help us do even more to help brands use social media to move the marketing needle.

Masterson added:

I am thrilled to be part of SocialCode. It is exciting to join a fast-growing company that is behind much of the most innovative and effective social media marketing in the industry. The last two years at Facebook have put me in a unique position to fully understand the social needs of advertisers and the custom social strategies necessary to achieve exceptional results. I hope to build on SocialCode’s progress of 2012 and look forward to additional growth and success for the company and our clients.
