David Fischer, former chief revenue officer at Facebook, has been named a partner with 01 Advisors, a venture capital firm co-founded in 2019 by former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and former Twitter COO Adam Bain.

Driving the news: 01 Advisors also announced Tuesday that it has raised $395 million for its third fund, which is a step up from the $325 million it raised for Fund II.

Background: Fisher was Facebook's CRO between 2010 and the end of 2021, before which he worked at Google and as deputy chief of staff at the U.S. Treasury Department.
