Dipchand "Deep" Nishar will be vice president of products for the company, which until now has focused on social networking, a LinkedIn spokesman said.

Nishar was most recently Google's senior director of products, Asia-Pacific.

A Google spokesman praised Nishar.

"We're grateful for Deep's contributions over the last five and a half years and wish him well in his new job," said Matt Furman in a statement.

Nishar is among several executives who have left Google for senior positions in less prominent firms.
