Rachel Racusen, former director of communications at Snap (Snapchat’s developer), has joined female-centric coworking operator The Wing as vice president of communications.
Racusen isn’t the first to depart from Snap — just earlier the year, chief financial officer Tim Stone stepped down and global security head Francis Racioppi was fired after having an inappropriate relationship with an outside contractor.
Racusen also served as the associate communications director under President Barack Obama and vice president at MSNBC.
In addition to Racusen, The Wing has also enlisted former Airbnb product lead Nickey Skarstad as vice president of product and Saumya Manohar, Casper’s former vice president of legal, as general counsel.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing this group of seasoned and talented women to build out our executive team,” said CEO Audrey Gelman. “The Wing is the perfect home for leaders who thrive on fast growth and want to combine their social values with their work practice.”
