Investment firm Greylock has named Josh McFarland as its newest investment partner.

The selection ends an eight year courting process Greylock had engaged in to bring Twitter s current vice president of product on board.

However, McFarland doesn t start work for a while as he s currently working on transitioning things at Twitter, but is expected to officially become an investor at the end of Q1 2017.McFarland brings with him quite a bit of experience both in the operations and product space, having worked for multiple startups, Google, and even becoming an entrepreneur-in-residence at Greylock.

In fact, it was here when he and Mark Ayzenshtat launched TellApart, a ad technology company which was acquired by Twitter in 2015.

In the nearly two years since, he has ascended from being a senior director of product to its vice president.His departure would be another notch in Twitter s growing list of executive departures.

Twitter recently acquired app maker Yes to bring on new product lead Keith Coleman who replaces Kevin Weil.
