Square Hires Ex-Google Global Sales Executive Brougher

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- Square Inc. has hired former Google Inc. executive Francoise Brougher as the company’s business lead, overseeing areas including customer support, partnerships and international expansion.

Brougher previously served as a vice president of sales and operations at Google, focused on small and medium-sized businesses, San Francisco-based Square said today in an e-mailed statement. Before that, she was vice president of business strategy at Charles Schwab & Co.

Founded by Twitter Inc. Chairman and co-founder Jack Dorsey, Square introduced a stamp-size credit-card reader in 2009 that can be used with smartphones and tablets.

Juniper Research estimates that the market for mobile payments for physical goods may top $170 billion in transactions by 2015, up from about $60 billion in 2011.
