On Tuesday (FB.O), Meta Platforms Inc announced that Stan Chudnovsky, the company’s Messenger head who is also in charge of the integration of the social media network’s messaging programs, will leave in 2022.
Chudnovsky has been the product head for communications at Meta, formerly known as Facebook, for almost seven years. In 2018, he was promoted to Messenger Manager. After IronPearl, a user tracking startup he co-founded, was acquired by the payments firm in 2013, he worked as global strategy head at Paypal (PYPL.O).
Loredana Crisan, who has been at Meta for about six years, will take over as head of Messenger, which includes Instagram messaging and Messenger Kids, according to Chudnovsky.
According to Chudnovsky’s post, Maher Saba, who joined the company in 2013, would be in charge of remote presence products and engineering.
In October, Facebook’s holding company changed its name to Meta, undergoing a makeover at a time when lawmakers and regulators have criticized the corporation’s market power, algorithmic judgments, and policing of abuses on its platforms.
