Carolyn Everson is leaving the Facebook Inc Advertising Director, said she in a post on the social media platform on Wednesday.
Carolyn wishes a good move as she faces a new chapter. We are thankful for her contributions, said a Facebook spokesperson in an emailed statement.
Everson, who had been a Facebook customer for more than a decade, became Vice President of Global Business Group. She was a key spokesperson for the company when more than 1,000 advertisers joined a Facebook boycott last summer on concerns it was not enough to overcome hate speech on the platform.
The company said Nicola Mendelsohn, who runs the EMEA region of this division and has been within the company for eight years, will be the new interim leader of the Global Business Group.
