The head of communications at Facebook parent Meta Platforms, John Pinette, is leaving the company, the social media company said late on Friday (Jan 7).
Chris Norton, vice president of international communications, will cover the role on an interim basis, a Meta spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
“John Pinette has left Meta. We are thankful for his positive contributions during an intense and significant time in the company’s history, and we wish him well going forward,” the statement said.
The spokesperson declined to say why Pinette was leaving, citing Meta policy of not commenting on personnel matters.
The Wall Street Journal first reported Pinette’s departure on Friday.
