    Former Google CFO joins Twitter board, PepsiCo exec to depart

    Former Google Inc. Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette is joining the board of Twitter Inc. , as PepsiCo Inc. CFO Hugh Johnston leaves to join the board of Microsoft Corp. . Pichette resigned from Google in 2015 after serving as CFO of the web giant for nearly seven years, and will join as an independent director on Dec. 1 for a two-year term. "After taking a two-year sabbatical to spend time with my wife and travel the world, I'm excited to join the Twitter Board and help the company advance its mission," Pichette said in the announcement. Johnston will step down Oct. 1, and explained in Tuesday's announcement that PepsiCo policies limit the number of boards he can join, so his appointment at Microsoft means he must step down at Twitter.

Nestle did not provide financial details in announcing the deal, but The Financial Times reported that the company is paying up to $500 million for two-thirds of the company, valuing it at about $700 million.

"To us, this deal brings with it an attendant recognition and belief in our accomplishments," Meehan and Freeman said in a blog post. The coffee chain, founded in 2002, had attracted more than $120 million in venture investment from the likes of Alphabet Inc.'s Google Ventures, Chris Sacca of "Shark Tank" and Twitter Inc. cofounder Ev Williams, according to Crunchbase.
