Twitter house member Hugh Johnston — day job: Pepsi clamp authority and CFO — has left Twitter’s house to join Microsoft’s house as of today. Johnston’s deputy during a microblogging association is Patrick Pichette, a former CFO of Google.

No earlier was Johnston’s new purpose announced by Microsoft, so Twitter was trumpeting a possess new addition, Canada-born Pichette, who served as Google CFO between 2008 and 2015.

Twitter already has another former Googler on a house in a form of Omid Kordestani, a executive chairman, who assimilated in 2015.

Microsoft’s house includes association owner Bill Gates, Greylock’s Reid Hoffman, Teri L. List-Stoll from Gap, and Bank Of America’s Charles H. Nosk among others. The Twitter board, meanwhile, includes Peter Chernin, Martha Lane Fox, CEO Jack Dorsey and others.
