Top Facebook communications exec Rachel Whetstone is departing for Netflix

Ironically, sources said that Whetstone had come to Facebook to avoid the many thorny challenges she had dealt with in previous jobs. Just before she came to Facebook, Whetstone served as head of communications and public policy for Uber, where she clashed with CEO and founder Travis Kalanick, who was later ousted. Before Uber, Whetstone was head of communications and policy at Google, where she worked for a decade and oversaw a nonstop barrage of PR crises — including some highly personal ones. – Kara Swisher, Recode
