Slashdot Nemesis Digg Steals A Google Exec As New VP Product
Digg has poached Keval Desai away from Google as their new Vice President of Product, we've confirmed from the company. Desais last day at Google is today (November 30th).
Desai is a long time Google employee, first joining the company in 2003. Hes currently their Director of Product Management and has led development of product/businesses in Googles advertising business (including AdWords, Syndication & TV Ads).
Hell be Diggs first head of product, a responsibility that has been shared at various times by founder Kevin Rose, CEO Jay Adelson and Chief Strategy Officer Mike Maser. And hes got a big job ahead of him: Digg is hard at work on releasing an entirely new version of the site.
Digg continues to build out a top exec team. In the last year theyve brought in Thomas Shin and then Chas Edwards on the sales side. And new head designer Jeffrey Kalmikoff is hard at work building out Diggs next user experience.
...and then there's Geeknet... :(
