Facebook COO Sandberg Joins Starbucks Board Of Directors

Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, has joined the board of directors of Starbucks, her first public company board position.

Sandberg, who’s generally shy of press (she’s done just one video interview since she joined Facebook a year ago), is going to be getting a lot of credit in the future for driving revenue growth at Facebook. Prior to Facebook she was the VP Online Operations and Sales at Google and one of their first 300 employees. She was also previously with McKinsey & Company, the Chief of Staff for the United States Treasury Department under President Bill Clinton, and an economist with the World Bank where she worked on eradicating leprosy in India. And she’s not yet 40.

The Starbucks job comes with a $280,000 annual salary. But, absurdly, the job doesn’t get her free coffee.
