SAN FRANCISCO: Twitter has hired Rebecca Hahn as VP of global communications.
Hahn, reporting to Twitter CMO Leslie Berland, started in the role last week. Berland had been handling comms on an interim basis before Hahn’s appointment.
Twitter’s lead comms position has been a revolving door as of late. In June 2021, VP of global comms Brandon Borrman exited the company. Twitter then replaced Borrman with Kelly Sims, who left four months later in November.
Berland announced Hahn’s appointment in a Twitter post.
Beyond thrilled to welcome the incredible force that is @rhahn as our new Head of Global Comms! She’s strategic, insightful, unflappable! Rebecca will lead the most agile, creative, resilient comms team in the world - hands down. Welcome Rebecca!!— Leslie Berland (@leslieberland) July 12, 2022
Hahn leads a team “responsible for developing, shaping and driving narratives around the service’s mission, to give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly without barriers,” according to a company statement.
A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment further.
Before joining Twitter, Hahn was CCO for electric vehicle company Bird, where she led a team of comms, PR, design, brand, social impact and marketing experts, according to her LinkedIn profile. She also managed the company’s global policy and government partnerships organizations.
Hahn also formerly served as a partner at The OutCast Agency and, prior to that, as Oracle’s director of corporate comms.
Twitter also recently announced two other executive moves: Maggie Suniewick as VP of partnerships and Ella Irwin as VP of product for health and Twitter service.
In February, the social media titan hired Discord vet Bemnet Yemesgen as global head of creative strategy and brand identity.
