I’m excited to share that Facebook’s board of directors has nominated Peggy Alford to join our board. Peggy has deep experience in many areas related to commerce and our business as Senior Vice President of Core Markets at PayPal, at Rent.com and eBay, and previously as Chief Financial Officer and Head of Operations at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
Peggy is a thoughtful leader across multiple disciplines — from business management to finance operations and product development. I’ve learned a lot working with her at CZI and I look forward to how she will help us address the opportunities and challenges facing our company.
I also want to thank Reed Hastings and Erskine Bowles who have served on our board since 2011. They are two of wisest people I have had the opportunity to work with. I’m grateful for everything they’ve done to advance Facebook’s mission and for all they’ve taught me over the past eight years.
