Facebook’s marketing director Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of the social-networking site’s CEO and co-founder
Mark Zuckerberg, has announced she’s leaving the company to start her own business.
Ms Zuckerberg is leaving the company after six years to start her own business focused on helping other companies become âmore socialâ.
The 29-year-old told Mashable she had been thinking of starting her own business – RtoZ Media â for ‘a really long time’.
Ms Zuckerberg is expected to draw upon her experience in developing Facebookâs marketing strategy and its live video channel.
In her resignation letter, she wrote: âI have spent my years at Facebook pouring my heart and soul into innovating and pushing the media industry forward by introducing new concepts around live, social, participatory viewing that the media industry has since adopted.
âWe have made incredible progress, but there is still much to be done and other ways I can affect change. Now is the perfect time for me to move outside of Facebook to build a company focused on the exciting trends underway in the media industry.â
Facebook confirmed the news, with a statement which read: ‘We can confirm Randi has decided to leave Facebook to start her own company.
‘We are all grateful for her important service.’
There has so far been no comment from her brother Mark, who co-founded Facebook in 2004.
As AllThingsD.com points out, Zuckerberg is leaving Facebook on a high after recently being nominated for an Emmy in the live coverage of a current news event category for her work on Facebook Live.
