Facebook Taps Former Comcast Exec To Head Outreach Program

March 19, 2012

Facebook has named a former Comcast executive as head of the social network's community engagement programs.

Susan Gonzales, who spent eight years at Comcast overseeing the Comcast Foundation and federal and external affairs, has been working as a consultant for Facebook since August.

In her new position as head of community engagement, Gonzales will manage outreach programs to communities as well and members of Congress. She will be based at Facebook's California headquarters but will report to Joel Kaplan, who head's the company's Washington, D.C., office.

Gonzales has worked on Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's Partnership for American Great Outdoors, and has worked with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute, according to a statement from Facebook.
