Facebook’s Audit Director AND Marketing Leads Are Former Pfizer Directors

Reports reveal that Facebook’s audit director and marketing leads are former Pfizer directors in what seems to be a conflict of interest considering the companies actions to censor messages during the pandemic.

Facebook’s Audit Director AND Marketing Leads Are Former Pfizer Directors

Facebook, which routinely blocks postings disparaging of COVID-19 vaccinations, has hired numerous alumni from Pfizer’s marketing and internal audit departments to spearhead similar initiatives.

The appointments seem to be a conflict of interest for the social media site, which has been chastised for censoring and deleting individuals who have talked about the adverse effects or challenged the efficiency of COVID-19 vaccines.

For instance, Facebook’s Internal Audit Director was previously a Senior Director at Pfizer. Tiffany Stokes, the employee, has held a crucial role at Facebook since January 2020.

“Build and own strong relationships with critical business partners, provide project oversight of operational audits, manage internal audit plan and risk assessment,” she lists as part of her job description on her LinkedIn profile.

“Leadership requires close collaboration with the Sales, Partnerships, Global Operations, International, HR, and Legal teams to assess and prioritize risks across an ever-changing high-tech business landscape,” she adds.

Stokes spent five years as the Senior Director of Finance and Legal Operations of COVID-19 vaccine producer Pfizer before joining Facebook.

“Established and managed legal, budgeting, and forecasting processes to achieve the business’s financial goals as well as cost control commitments made to shareholders and the financial and investment community,” she summarized her position.

She served as the pharmaceutical giant’s Assistant Treasurer for the United States and Capital Markets, where she “directed” the company’s $8 billion investment portfolio.

Pfizer’s previous Chief Marketing Officer for consumer healthcare in the United States is now a Facebook Vice President for Global Clients and Categories. Brian Groves, the employee, spent 14 years at Pfizer before entering Facebook as a Director of Global Accounts.

Likewise, in 2018, a former Pfizer Director of Digital Marketing and Innovation entered Facebook as a Client Partner for its Global Marketing Solutions unit.

In addition to recruiting alumni from Pfizer’s marketing team, Facebook hired Pfizer’s ex Senior Public Affairs and Corporate Communications Project Manager as its own Corporate Communications Manager in 2019.

The discovered human links between Pfizer and Facebook come after the social media site used third-party “fact-checkers” with significant connections to Democratic politics and the Chinese Communist Party to label COVID-19 studies and articles as “disinformation.”
