Nicola Mendelsohn has a new job. This British mother of four is about to become Facebook’s Vice-President for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. But that’s not the big news. Rumor has it, she’ll also be a rare tech exec who only works four days a week.
In the past, Mendelsohn has insisted on the 4-day week so that she can balance her family and work and so far it hasn’t been an issue. Her current position is as executive chairman of creative agency Karmarama where half of her staff takes advantage of the option to work flexible hours or work from home.
