Exclusive: Ex-Googler joins NEA

November 1, 2011: 8:00 AM ET

Former Google exec and Khosla partner has a new job.

Alex Kinnier has joined venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates as a partner, Fortune has learned.

Kinnier most recently was a Silicon Valley-based partner with Khosla Ventures, but left earlier this year to be closer to his family on the East Coast. His initial plan was to launch a start-up, but later opted to remain in the investment business. He will work out of NEA's offices in New York City and Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Prior to joining Khosla in early 2008 to focus on renewable energy opportunities, Kinnier spent three years as a group product manager at Google (GOOG), where he led the company's large-client ad platform team. Before that, he co-founded cleantech company Ocular Technologies and was a product and brand manager with Procter & Gamble (PG), where he focused on new Febreze products.

At NEA, Kinnier will focus on early-stage investments in the consumer Internet and information technology sectors. He did not return a request for comment. Also no comment yet from NEA, but expect a formal announcement sometime this week.
