Exclusive: Jess Verrilli leaving Twitter for Google Ventures

May 29, 2015

Jessica Verrilli is stepping down as director of corporate development and strategy at Twitter (twtr), in order to join Google Ventures as a partner, Fortune has learned.

Verrilli (@jess) has been in her current role since last summer, but is a longtime Twitter employee, having first joined back in April 2009. Most of her other roles were in corporate and business development, including a 2011 stint in London. Her recent credits include a key role in Twitter's acquisition of live-streaming video app Periscope, and previously helped wrangle Vine.

Earlier this year, Verrilli was one of seven female Twitter executives who formed an angel investing group called #Angel. Prior to Twitter, Verrilli also had VC experience as an associate with Venrock.

It is important to note that being a "partner" at Google Ventures is different than being a "general partner," although the distinction at Google Ventures is a bit hazy and Verrilli is expected to have a checkbook.

No comment so far from Google Ventures, Twitter or Verrilli.
