Former Google boss John Herlihy has a new LinkedIn profile
Former Google Ireland chief John Herlihy has added a new job to his LinkedIn profile.
Herlihy, one of Ireland's most powerful technology professionals, has joined LinkedIn as vice president and managing director of its Europe, Middle East and Africa. The news was revealed on independent.ie yesterday.
Mr Herlihy worked for Google for a decade and oversaw the growth of its Irish office from 50 to 2,500 staff. At LinkedIn he will be responsible for the company's strategic direction as well as driving member growth. With more than 400 million members, LinkedIn is the largest professional network on the internet.
The job will keep Mr Herlihy in Ireland as LinkedIn's international headquarters is in Dublin. Late last year the company revealed plans to double its Irish workforce to 1,200.
