Sheryl Sandberg is no longer single, thanks to her former brother-in-law.
The COO of Facebook, 49, attended a Garth Brooks concert in Idaho on Sunday with her new boyfriend, Tom Bernthal. Bernthal is the co-founder and CEO of Kelton Global.
The “Lean In” author and Bernthal, 45, were set up by Rob Goldberg, the brother of Sanberg’s late husband, Dave Goldberg, who died while vacationing in 2015. The Silicon Valley entrepreneur was found lying near a treadmill, and was at first believed to have suffered head trauma, but later was found to have passed away from heart-related causes.
“Tom is Rob’s best friend, and it is really special that Dave’s brother was the one to connect them,” a source told People. “He’s this really nice, down-to-earth guy. They’re both devoted parents. It’s a nice thing that it has worked out so well.”
According to People, the couple even posed for photos with Brooks, 57, and his wife, Trisha Yearwood.
