Elon Musk on Friday named longtime media executive Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter, months after he promised to step back from the role.
The announcement comes after the billionaire on Thursday tweeted that he had found someone new to lead the social media platform, adding that “she will be starting in ~6 weeks”.
While the announcement of Linda Yaccarino’s new role as CEO of Twitter has garnered much attention, many are curious about her husband, Claude Madrazo.
Who is Claude Madrazo, Linda Yaccarino’s husband?
Claude Peter Madrazo is the husband of the current Twitter CEO, Linda Yaccarino.
The pair – who are both of Italian descent – live in Sea Cliff, New York.
Claude Madrazo and his wife share two children together – Christian and Matthew.
It appears that he prefers to keep a low profile, as he doesn’t have any public social media accounts and there is limited information about his professional background.
Claude does appear to have a LinkedIn account, where he listed himself as an “owner.”
However, there are no photos of him nor any details on his previous or current positions.
The only known detail about his previous work history is that he was employed at Turner Broadcasting.
Who is Claude Madrazo’s wife, Linda Yaccarino?
Linda Yaccarino is a distinguished name in the world of advertising.
