Former eBay Canada exec now heading up Facebook Canada

fbcYesterday I sent Jordan Banks a happy birthday message through Facebook.  Today I found out that the Thunder Road Capital executive is now heading up Facebook Canada.  

Earlier this year I opined whether Facebook Canada was closing down their Canadian operations after letting go of Louise Clements.  It seems they are not.  In fact, this announcement is a serious move in the right direction.

This is definitely an interesting and very positive move for Facebook.  Not only does Jordan bring to the table his experience in heading up eBay Canada but he also has the foresight of an early technology investor and mentor from his work through Thunder Road Capital.

We wish Jordan all the best in this new challenge.  Oh, and happy birthday.

What do you think of Jordan Banks heading up Facebook Canada?
