Also: Twitter taps a new vp of global media.
Barry Diller’s InterActiveCorp (IAC) has lost a second content executive in the span of a week. Following the departure of Vimeo CEO Kerry Trainor on Monday, CollegeHumor co-founder and Notional CEO Ricky Van Veen announced on Wednesday that he’s moving to Facebook as the social giant’s head of global creative strategy.
In a post on Facebook, Van Veen said he’ll be "working with all types of creators and organizations to figure out how best to use the biggest network in the world to better connect people with engaging and meaningful content."
Van Veen and Josh Abramson launched CollegeHumor in 1999. The comedy site known for its irreverent sense of humor and original video content was acquired by IAC in 2006, after which Van Veen became CEO of the IAC-owned TV production company Notional. He is married to Girls star Allison Williams.
