BusinessWeek has scored an interview with Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. The questions focus mostly on the company’s recent recruitment coup: hiring Sheryl Sandberg away from Google.
How did Zuckerberg do it?
I met her at a friend’s Christmas party before the beginning of 2008…Then we started talking a lot at Davos at the end of January. We had a lot of time to talk there. There are a lot of people who are talented at scaling operations and building companies. But her experience at Google gives her just about the most-relevant industry experience that anyone could have. Even though our product is very different [than Google's], there are components that are similar. One is scaling sales operations.
What will Sandberg do at Facebook?
