Co-CEO since 2008: Sheryl Sandberg leaves Facebook group Meta

For years she has worked closely alongside Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Now Sheryl Sandberg is leaving the company. In the past there have always been rumors about a cooled relationship with the Facebook boss.

Top manager Sheryl Sandberg, who was long considered the right-hand man of founder Mark Zuckerberg at the Facebook group Meta, is leaving the online giant. "After 14 years I will be leaving Meta," Sandberg wrote on her Facebook page. The years "at the side of Mark" Zuckerberg, the boss and founder of the company, were a great honor, but now she is stepping down as CEO.

She wants to focus more on her charity activities in the future, says the 52-year-old. Sandberg gained his first experience at Google and joined Facebook in 2008. As the person responsible for the operational business, she played a leading role in turning the online network from a relatively small player in the online business into a billion-dollar corporation.

In recent years there has been speculation about a cooled relationship between the 38-year-old Zuckerberg and Sandberg - which has always been rejected. Sandberg is to remain on the board of directors of Meta, the group's supervisory body. Meta shares fell about 4 percent as a result of the news of the departure.

"This is the end of an era," said billionaire Zuckerberg. He recalled joining Sandberg in 2008 when he was 23. At that time he himself understood nothing about corporate management.
