Hired in 2005 as the vice president of product management, Cohler was the seventh Facebook employee. He remains a "special advisor" to the company, but his primary responsibility today is as general partner of venture capital firm Benchmark Capital, whose investments include Quora and Asana. Cohler's role as venture capital Mafioso comes with experience: Before he started at Facebook, Cohler was protégé to Reid Hoffman, another member of the PayPal Mafia.
