Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has a lesser known executive who could help Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) or Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) unlock their potential. Chris Cox is Facebook’s Chief Products Officer, and he has been with the company for nearly 10 years. Some analysts believe he is the best man to lead either Twitter or Yahoo. However, questions are also asked about why Cox would be interested to leave Facebook.

It was Cox who a few days ago unveiled Facebook’s revamped mobile ad format. Cox came to Facebook when he was just 23, having graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Stanford. At Facebook, Cox has been credited for numerous successful product launches.

It has been cited that Cox has had a hand in Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s strategic acquisitions such as WhatsApp, Oculus and Instagram.

At Facebook, Cox is credited for having consistently spearheaded efforts that led to the launch of hugely successful products. Cox oversees thousands of engineers at Facebook and many have called him a superstar talent.

If Twitter or Yahoo wanted to unlock their true potential, perhaps that would start by wresting Cox away from Facebook.

Cox as Mayer replacement

Many analysts and investors agree that Yahoo’s CEO, Marissa Mayer, has made her contribution for the three years she has led the company. However, there is a feeling that she needed to step down and allow someone fresh to lead Yahoo to the next phase of growth.

Cox for Twitter

In the case of Twitter, the company announced the exit of Dick Costolo and the search is on for his permanent replacement. Given that Twitter has mostly struggled on the products front, Cox would be a perfect fit for the company at this juncture. Cox’s product development credentials speak out for him.
