It’s time for a revolution in the Meta house with the surprise resignation of Sheryl Sandberg. The COO of the company, in fact, has announced a step back after having spent 14 years in what was called Facebook until a few months ago. The announcement was made, of course, through the pages of the social network that Sheryl Sandberg herself, the real number two of Zuckerberg in Meta, helped to grow.

Sheryl Sandberg leaves Meta after 14 years

In these hours it has arrived Sheryl Sandberg’s official announcement which he confirmed the intention to leave the position of COO (Chief Operating Officer) of Mega. The manager joined Facebook back in 2008, when the company had just turned five. Initially, Sandberg was supposed to stay on Facebook for just five years but things quickly changed. Sheryl Sandberg stressed that “after fourteen years it is time for me to write the next chapter of my life”. Sandberg will remain on the company’s board of directors.

There is already the replacement

Sandberg’s farewell does not find Meta unprepared (probably it is a farewell already planned for some time). He will be replacing Sandberg in the role of COO of Meta Javier Olivan. More details on the handover should arrive over the next few days. Certainly, the balance within the company’s management will change. Meta is going through a profound process of change and now he will have to deal with the farewell of one of the key figures in his success.
