Cristina Hoole leaves PayPal for LinkedIn

I don't usually cover moves but this one looks interesting.

Cristina Hoole was once Head of Retail and Consumer PR at Visa Europe. She then then moved onto PayPal.

I know this is an HR role but we can see the 'new media' trend there; from the credit card to the dotcom.

She's moved again. I'm not sure what her job title at LinkedIn is (I assume Head of PR) but Clare O'Conner from Haymarket points out she's been given a clear European brief.

The other interesting thing to note that that Hoole will be working with LinkedIn's PR agency Chameleon PR. Chaemeleon won the LinkedIn work after it was decided the previous PR agency - Bite - had a conflict of interest. Bite was working with Facebook too.

It's a small world, isn't it?
