Washington Post Names SurveyMonkey CEO to Board
The Washington Post Co. (NYSE: WPO) has named Dave Goldberg to its board of directors, increasing its size to 11 members.
Goldberg, who is married to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, is CEO of SurveyMonkey, which he joined in April 2009.
Donald Graham, chairman and CEO of The Washington Post, said, “Dave Goldberg is one of the wisest advisers and business people in Silicon Valley. We’re lucky to have him join the board.”
“Goldberg's addition to the Washington Post's board is notable because Don Graham, chairman and CEO of the Washington Post, is a Facebook board member,” said Reuters.
In 1994, Goldberg founded LAUNCH Media Inc., which delivered music and music-related content online, and led the company through its acquisition by Yahoo! in 2001. Following the sale, he served as vice president and general manager of Yahoo! Music, where he led the company’s global music operations and built it into the Internet’s most popular music destination. In 2006, Goldberg was named one of Billboard Magazine’s top power players in digital music. Recently, he served as an entrepreneur-in-residence with Benchmark Capital, where he evaluated investment opportunities for the firm and advised portfolio companies. Earlier in his career, he was director of marketing strategy and new business development at Capitol Records.
Goldberg serves on the Board of Directors of Ancestry.com and Dashbox. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University with a BA in history and government.
