Ever since Google Inc. launched its venture capital arm about a year ago, it’s remained furtive about staffing.
The company said in March 2009 that Google Ventures‘ investments would be vetted by William Maris, the founder of Web hosting company Burlee.com who joined Google in 2008, and Rich Miner, a co-founder of Android.
