Brougher to spearhead the company’s Compensation Committee
Brings over 25 years of operational and go-to-market experience
Velocity Global, the leading provider of global talent solutions, announced today that notable technology executive Francoise Brougher has joined its board of directors, where she will serve as an independent board member and lead the company’s compensation efforts.
“Francoise is exactly the type of board member we need to lead Velocity Global through the next phase of our growth. She led companies that we all admire through keen insights and operational leadership. Francoise knows what great looks like at scale,” says Ben Wright, CEO and board chair at Velocity Global. “Furthermore, I personally deeply admire her courage through a tough journey at Pinterest. Her experience, strength, and hope should encourage every one of us to stand up for what’s right as we move through our careers. It’s a true honor to have Francoise join our team, and I can’t wait to see where we take this company as we simplify work anywhere.”
Brougher spent eight years running business and operations strategy as well as SMB global sales and operations at Google. After her time at Google, she was the global business lead at Square, supporting the company’s IPO. Brougher then joined Pinterest as chief operating officer. She serves on the board of Sodexo, which employs over 400,000 people and serves over 100 million customers per day.
Brougher joins Robert Schlossman as an independent board member along with investor board members Cas Schneller, Kunal Aurora, and Parker Barrile.

In a world that is becoming more competitive, the ability to hire anywhere is a great differentiator.
