Facebook Scores A Big Googler

According to Kara Swisher, Facebook has hired David Fischer, who will serve as Facebook’s VP of Advertising and Global Operations. Fischer is coming directly from Google where he served in Sheryl Sandberg’s previous position before she left to become the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook.

This new hire is a sign of Facebook’s increasing focus on boosting their brand advertising revenue, something that Google was also focused on. As the company continues to drive its revenue from performance advertising, it’s not surprising to see the company recruit top industry talent to drive advertising efforts moving forward.
