Facebook has been hiring a former Google executive to help guide its future design of its headquarters, the company said Tuesday.
Brad Parscale, who is an adviser to Facebook on design, said in a statement that he is the “senior designer for Facebook’s future headquarters.”
“He brings more than 40 years of building experience, design, and architecture experience to the team, and has extensive experience in large and small-scale construction, office and retail space, and office infrastructure,” Parscale said.
Parscale was recently hired by the company as a senior designer for its headquarters in Mountain View, California, which is about a half-hour north of the Silicon Valley city.
Facebook declined to name the company’s new chief operating officer.
A Facebook spokeswoman declined to comment on the hiring, citing the company terms of the company-sponsored “Gang of Four” agreement.
Parkscale, a former principal architect for Google’s New York office, will join the Facebook office after working as an architectural designer at Microsoft Corp. Parscale previously worked at Microsoft and at Google.
He is a member of Google’s Design Design Group, a group of experts that is responsible for the companys design and engineering processes.
