Digg Hires Vast And Coremetrics Alum Ben Folk-Williams As New VP Of Engineering

As we wrote in late November, Digg’s longtime VP of Engineering John Quinn joined flash sales giant Gilt Groupe. Today, Digg is announcing his replacement—Ben Folk-Williams.

Folk-Williams was previously VP of Engineering at search and listings company Vast.com, and prior to that, led engineering at analytics startup Coremetrics, which was acquired by IBM last June.

Digg has a little bit of a shakeup at its executive level, losing its CFO and Chief Revenue Officer last Fall. And the company unfortunately succumbed to layoffs as well. It’s good to see the company adding more execs and talent.
