Facebook brings in AIM + ICQ GM turned Mayfield VC as new VP

The WSJ reported today that Facebook has hired Chamath Palihapitiya as its new VP, Product Marketing and Operations.

Chamath has spent the last year and a half investing in consumer internet, media, and advertising companies for Mayfield Fund on Sand Hill Road. He’s also on the board of Consorte Media, “an online direct marketing company focused on the Hispanic market.” Before Mayfield, he spent his longest stint running the AIM and ICQ businesses at AOL.

Maybe the only way he could invest in Facebook at this point was to join!
