She announced this news through a Facebook post. She wrote, “I’m excited to share that I am taking on a new role as Facebook’s Chief Business Officer. This is a new position overseeing Facebook’s advertising business and global partnerships. It is a privilege to be leading a business that enables economic and social change for our global partners, helping them to create their brand, build their community, and grow their business through the innovative solutions we offer across our platforms.”
She went on to say, “In each of the leadership roles I’ve held at Facebook — from head of Global Policy, to COO of Instagram, to VP of Global Partnerships, Business, and Corporate Development — I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with partners (as I’ve captured here!) and businesses of all shapes and sizes. These have been my favorite moments: hearing firsthand how our solutions helped them turn their passion into a business and in many cases, changed their lives.”
