SurveyMonkey will add two new members to its board of directors, including Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg.

Sandberg is the widow of David Goldberg, who was CEO at SurveyMonkey from 2009 until he died while on vacation in May. He was exercising at a gym when he fell and hit his head. Goldberg's cause of death was listed as severe head trauma and severe loss of blood.

His death triggered a flood of tributes, including this from President Obama: "He was generous and kind with everybody, and cared less about the limelight than making sure that the people he worked with and loved succeeded in whatever they did."

The Palo Alto, California, company said Monday its other new director is David Ebersman, the CEO of Lyra Health and former chief financial officer at Facebook.

SurveyMonkey, which operates an online survey platform, also said Zander Lurie, its acting executive chairman, will take on the role on a permanent basis.
