Facebook Nabs Google’s David Fischer & Google Nabs Oracle’s Amit Singh

We had two interesting employments changes at Google reported both at AllThingsD. First, Google lost their VP of Global Online Sales & Operations, David Fischer to Facebook. Then we learn that Google hired Oracle’s 20-year executive, Amit Singh. Amit will be Google’s VP of International Sales for Google’s enterprise business.

David Fischer will be the VP of Advertising and Global Operations at Facebook. Both Google and Facebook sent a statement about Fisher’s job change:

Said Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said, “It’s a testament to Facebook’s expanding opportunities in advertising that we’re able to welcome an executive of David’s caliber. I have worked closely with David over the years and witnessed his passion, energy, and effectiveness at building teams on a global scale. David’s arrival deepens our operational capabilities so we can build upon our ability to serve advertisers, regardless of size or location, that are building their brands on Facebook.”

Google said “We thank David for his many contributions to Google and wish him the best of luck in the future.”
