Twitter head of corporate development to depart

Jessica Verrilli, Twitter's vice president of corporate development and strategy, is leaving the company after almost nine years, she tweeted on Friday.

But now I’m ready to take time off, recharge, and figure out what’s next. I’m resigning from my role as VP of Corporate Development & Strategy and transitioning out over the holidays.— Jessica Verrilli (@jess) December 8, 2017

Why it matters: Verrilli, who helped Twitter acquire more than 30 companies (according to her LinkedIn profile), is the latest executive to leave the company in the last couple of years. This is also her second departure from Twitter—she had a four-month stint as an investment partner at GV (formerly, Google Ventures) in mid-2015 before coming back.
