Tracy Yaverbaun and Facebook

Tracy joined Facebook in January 2008 as Client Solutions Manager for the UK.  This became an international role in late 2008, after which she went on to start the pan-European team in January 2009.

Prior to Facebook

Prior to Facebook, Tracy worked for AOL Time Warner for three years, from January 2005 to December 2007, as Client Services Manager on the Entertainment and CPG categories.  In March 2007, she moved into a commercial development role, monetising AOL products and services for brands and advertisers.
