Sheryl Sandberg is one of the most accomplished and most respected executives in the technology industry. Today Sandberg can add one more accomplishment to her already long list: a position on Disney’s board of directors. In addition to joining the board of Disney, which is one of the largest global corporations, Sandberg also recently joined the board of directors of Starbucks.
In an industry dominated by men, Sheryl Sandberg stands as a role model for aspiring female business executives. Sheryl Sandberg first joined Facebook less than two years ago following the exit of Owen Van Natta, who has since become the CEO of MySpace. Sandberg joined Facebook after serving as the VP of global online sales at Google. She also served as the Chief of Staff of the U.S. Treasury Department.
Disney is currently the 60th largest corporation based on annual revenues, according to Fortune. Starbucks is ranked 261.
