Hubbard, who is stepping into the role on an interim basis, is replacing outgoing vp global media Katie Jacobs Stanton, whose departure Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced Sunday evening. 

The appointment comes after Twitter has lost five senior level executives, including Stanton, senior vp product Kevin Weil, vp engineering Alex Roetter, HR chief Skip Schipper and Vine general manager Jason Toff.

Dorsey tweeted Sunday evening that COO Adam Bain would take on oversight of media, HR and revenue-related products while the company finds replacements for each position. 

Hubbard has overseen Twitter's commerce strategy since 2013. Prior to that, he was CEO of Ticketmaster.

A Twitter spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
