SAN FRANCISCO: Pinterest has hired Malorie Lucich, former manager of platform PR at Facebook, to serve as its manager of communications.
Barry Schnitt, head of communications at Pinterest, said via email that the company is “thrilled to have [Lucich] on the team.”
Schnitt added that since she just started in her role, he can't share other details.
Schnitt also previously worked at Facebook, serving as director of corporate communications and public policy until joining Pinterest last year.
Lucich worked at Facebook for four and a half years. Her main responsibilities included leading communications for the social network's games and media verticals and overseeing platform product PR and campaigns.
Before Facebook, Lucich worked at OutCast Communications for two years.
In addition to Lucich and Schnitt, Pinterest has brought on other former Facebook executives, such as Don Faul, who served as VP of online operations at Facebook. Faul has been Pinterest's head of operations since last May.
Pinterest head of product management Tim Kendall and platform manager Cat Lee also previously worked at Facebook.
