Prior to Facebook, White worked with Google, and AllThingsD reported that she has been courted by fellow social network Pinterest, and she serves on the board of Lululemon, a retailer of women’s yoga and running gear.
Facebook confirmed White’s move to AllThingsD, and Systrom released the following statement:
I’m excited to bring Emily White onto the Instagram team. As we continue to scale our operation to support over 100 million active users, her experience with partnerships and business operations will play a major role in our future success.
