Ex-Google CFO Patrick Pichette is joining Twitter's board -- and it looks like he's never tweeted

Twitter’s board is swapping Pepsi CFO Hugh Johnston for ex-Google CFO Patrick Pichette.

Johnston is leaving Twitter to join Microsoft’s board, he said in a series of tweets Tuesday. Pichette is joining Twitter’s board after retiring as Google’s CFO in 2015 and completing a two-year sabbatical.

Interestingly, Pichette doesn’t seem to be much of a Twitter user. His account says he joined the service in February 2017 and he has yet to send a single tweet by time of publishing (though there’s always the chance he deleted all previous tweets).

Pichette’s connection to Twitter likely comes through the company’s executive chairman, Omid Kordestani‏, who was Google’s chief business officer until 2015.

Johnston’s departure comes after he joined Twitter’s board in April 2016. This isn’t the first shakeup on Twitter’s board this year: longtime board member and Benchmark partner Peter Fenton stepped down in May.
