Shery Sandberg quit as COO of Meta 

Sheryl Sandberg, who is the second most significant person at Meta after Mark Zuckerberg, has announced her resignation from Meta platforms on Thursday, through an official Facebook post, saying that she would leave her post in the fall but will retain a seat on the board. She also wrote, “Javier Olivan will be the next Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Meta.”

Reacting to the post, the CEO, Mark Zuckerberg wrote, “Sandberg’s departure an ‘end of era’. After 14 years, my good friend and partner Shery Sandberg is stepping down as COO of Meta.” Later, he said that he doesn’t plan to replace her role in the current phenomenon.

In another post, he wrote, “I am not sure that would be possible since she’s a superstar who defined the COO role in her own unique way. But even if it were possible, I think Meta has reached the point where it makes sense for our product and business groups to be more closely integrated, rather than having all the business and operations functions organized separately from our products.”

Elucidating the new structure and how the firm will operate once she officially leaves as COO of Meta, Zuckerberg said, “Javier Olivian will become our next Chief Operating Officer since he will now lead our integrated ads and business products in addition to continuing to lead our infrastructure, integrity, analytics, marketing, corporate development and growth teams. But this role will be different from what Sheryl has done. It will be a more traditional COO role where Javier will be focused internally and operationally.”

Sheryl Sandberg said she will concentrate more on her foundation and philanthropic work. She officially posted, “But I know it will include focusing more on my foundation and philanthropic work, which is more important to me than ever given how critical this moment is for women.” She concluded, saying, she will progress as a part of the board.
