Ebersman will join the social networking giant in September from US biotech company Genentech where he has been CFO for three years, during which time the company was acquired.
Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg said Ebersman helped triple revenues in his previous position. “His success in scaling the finance organisation of a fast-growing company will be important to Facebook,” he added.
Former Facebook CFO Gideon Yu left in April, with his replacement due to start work in September.
