Facebook VP of Global Marketing Solutions Grady Burnett joins Flurry

Grady_BurnettFacebook recently sustained another departure, as the company’s Vice President of Global Marketing Solutions, Grady Burnett, has joined San Francisco-based app management and advertising platform Flurry as Chief Operating Officer.

Flurry announced Monday that Burnett will join the company to lead sales, marketing and business development. He spend 4 1/2 years at Facebook, working on the Facebook Preferred Marketing Development program and helping fuel international advertising growth.

Flurry CEO and President Simon Khalaf commented on the new hire in a press release:

Grady is one of the very few executives that has built and scaled teams in all forms of online advertising from web display and ad serving at DoubleClick, to search at Google and most recently social at Facebook. We are honored to have Grady help Flurry and its 125,000 customers unlock the true potential of mobile advertising.

Before working at Facebook, Burnett spent roughly 4 years at Google as the company’s Director of Online Sales and Operations, managing a large part of the North American Adwords business.

Burnett noted that he’s excited to get started:

Flurry has been at the epicenter of the mobile revolution since its inception and has built the only data-powered, real-time ad buying and selling platform on mobile. I’m looking forward to helping take the company to the next level of scale to offer brand and performance marketers a world-class, ROI driven, mobile advertising partner that can consistently deliver the audience they need to grow.
