San Francisco Mark Zuckerberg has rarely changed the management of the Facebook group Meta so fundamentally since its founding 18 years ago. The CEO is taking advantage of the departure of top manager Sheryl Sandberg to redistribute many top positions.
The human resources and legal departments, which Sandberg had headed, will be directly subordinate to Zuckerberg in the future. Meta is also repositioning the development of artificial intelligence. The AI researcher and head of the Meta AI division, Jérôme Pesenti, is leaving the company. This was announced by Meta on Thursday.
With the restructuring, Mark Zuckerberg is primarily strengthening his own position in the company. In the future, the eight top managers of all central parts of the company will report directly to the CEO.
“When Sheryl came to me in 2008, I was only 23 years old and I hardly knew anything about running a company,” Zuckerberg says. Now is the time to set up the company differently.
