This was followed by platform marketing director Katie Mitic and mobile platform marketing manager Jonathan Matus.  Beard worked at Facebook for over 4 years and was responsible for developing relationships with top app companies.

The three executives left pleasant departure notices on their Facebook Timelines.  Beard plans to eventually start a new venture and Mitic said that she plans to work on her own mobile startup.
