Former 1pai.com general manager Wang Huainan will join Google (GOOG) in China and work as the search engine company's Chief Marketing Officer.
Wang Huainan's 4-month stint as general manager of online auction website 1pai.com came before the company was incorporated into Taobao.com, following Alibaba's acquisition of Yahoo (YHOO) China.
1pai.com was originally a joint venture between Yahoo and Sina.
In recent months Google has been filling its top China posts. It is currently fighting Microsoft over Google's acquistion of a former Microsoft (MSFT) chief to head its overall operations in China.
