Vodafone has appointed a former Google executive as non-executive director.

Omid Kordestani will join Vodafone on March 1. He joined Google in 1999 as it’s 11th employee, and is now a senior advisor to the office of CEO/founders at the search engine.

Kordestani also worked as product marketing manager for HP before joining US computer services company Netscape Communications. As vice president of business development, he grew Netscape’s website revenue from an annual run-rate of $88 million to more than $200 million within 18 months.

Vodafone Group Chairman Gerard Kleisterlee said: “Omid has an outstanding track record as a commercial leader and innovator in the technology sector and I am delighted to welcome him to the Vodafone Board.”
