Gideon Yu is the former chief financial officer at Facebook.  In late March, Yu had suddenly quit and it was uncertain where he was headed to next.  According to a source with TechCrunch, Yu has joined Khosla Ventures as a General Partner.

Yu was previously an SVP in Finance and Yahoo! and he was also the former CFO of YouTube.  Before joining Khosla, Yu worked for a short while at Sequoia Capital.  He was one of the main reasons why Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion.

Khosla recently raised $1 billion in a fund to invest in various startups in the mobile, Internet, science, and clean-tech sectors.
