David Sacks Eyes Trump Transition Team
Technology investor and former Southern California tech CEO David Sacks, most recently CEO of Zenefits, is apparently considering a position on the Trump transition team, according to reports over the weekend. It's unclear what role Sacks would have in the new administration; however, he has very close ties to fellow PayPal alumni Peter Thiel. Sacks has a very significant presence in Southern California's startup investment community, having invested in such companies as Comparably, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Clutter, and others; Sacks was also CEO of family tree site Geni when it was located in Los Angeles.
