Hearsay CEO Clara Shih Named to Starbucks Board
Starbucks has named Clara Shih, the CEO of Hearsay Social, to its board of directors.
Hearsay is a social media management tool for corporate brands that have local stores and representatives (in the mold of, say, Starbucks). It powers 16,000 such pages on Facebook, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Twenty-nine-year-old Shih is the author of the business book “The Facebook Era,” and was previously at Salesforce.
Other prominent tech execs on the Starbucks board include Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Juniper CEO Kevin Johnson, though Sandberg has indicated she will not run for re-election next year.
