NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Anthony Noto was preparing for life on the buy side after a decade as a research analyst at Goldman Sachs (GS - Get Report) and a stint running the firm's technology investment banking group. Then a $30 billion opportunity came knocking -- a job as Twitter's (TWTR - Get Report) new chief financial officer that came with "so much growth and opportunity" it was impossible for him to pass up.
Noto on Wednesday cited the "magnitude of opportunity" ahead of Twitter, even after a 2013 initial public offering that valued the company around $30 billion as the reason he decided to take a job as the company's chief financial officer just months after joining tech-focused hedge fund Coatue Management. Noto's comments, made at a conference hosted by Citigroup, underscored his belief that Twitter is just beginning to grow and monetize its user base, while also launching new media and advertising products in the U.S. and internationally.
