Fortune said in its snapshot of Sandberg:
As Facebook’s No. 2, Sandberg was a central player in its high-profile — and problematic — IPO. She joined the board shortly after and is responsible for the company’s moneymaking strategy. Also on the board of Disney, Sandberg is a vocal advocate for young women at work. Expect a book on the subject in 2013.
