"Big welcome to @Rob_Goulding who started today @Twitter. #jointheflock," wrote Adam Bain, the company's director of revenue, on Twitter this afternoon.

Most recently, Goulding headed retail and CPG advertising sales at Google out of the San Francisco office. According to his LinkedIn account, he worked in that role from October 2009 until this month, when he moved to Twitter. He also handled business-to-business and ad tech sales for Google in various roles, between April 2006 and October 2009, working in the New York City area.

Goulding is charged with "Recruiting, building business strategies and managing talent in Twitter's large-to-medium sized advertising channel," according to his LinkedIn page. He'll be based in the company's San Francisco offices.

Goulding is among 44 new employees who started this week. Twitter now has more than 100 people on staff according to a company spokesperson. Twitter is hiring for several additional ad sales positions, according to the firm's jobs listings page, including account exec positions in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
