Daily coupon deals website Groupon.com has hired Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) VP of Global Sales Operations Margo Georgiadis. Georgiadis will become the chief operating officer of Groupon. Groupon COO Rob Solomon exited the company in March and as the company prepares for an IPO, they need a fully staffed board. Georgiadis won’t have to move far to start her new job. She worked at Google in Chicago and that is where Groupon is based too. [BusinessInsider]
