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.
