The latest addition is Google stalwart Susan Wojcicki, who currently serves as CEO of YouTube.

Wojcicki first joined Google in 1999. Prior to moving over to the video sharing service team in February 2014, Wojcicki was senior vice president of advertising and commerce at Google, where she led design and engineering for AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick, and Google Analytics.

At YouTube, Wojcicki's responsibilities consist of running the division's content and business operations, engineering, and product development.

Earlier this year, General Colin Powell joined the San Francisco-headquartered company's Board, which also includes Yahoo chairman Maynard Webb, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan John Roos, and HP treasurer Larry Tomlinson.

The Salesforce board, which now stands at 11 members total, is overseen by the company's CEO and co-founder, Marc Benioff.

In Monday's announcement, Benioff lauded Wojcicki as "extraordinary executive who has been instrumental in helping to build the world's largest consumer cloud company, where scale, reliability and security are of critical importance."
