Groupon announced today that it has hired Faisal Masud former eBay exec as head of the company’s relatively new and somewhat successful Groupon Goods unit.
Yesterday, the company announced that another eBay exec, Kal Raman, was joining the company “to build out the company’s internal controls and processes, which have come under scrutiny after several recent gaffes.”
This after the company’s CEO Andrew Mason held an employee town hall meeting on Wednesday in which he allowed The Wall Street Journal to sit in via webcast and watch him drink beer. At one point, when his “voice broke,” he apologized for drinking too much, explaining that he usually conducts all company business while doing shots and there’s never a problem. Joking. But no seriously, he was drinking beer. Which prompted AllThingsD to ask Raman the next day if he was being brought in to provide adult supervision.
