Meta appoints new India head amid key departures

The social juggernaut said on Thursday that Devanathan, who joined the firm in 2016 and helped build the Singapore and Vietnam businesses, will report to Dan Neary, Vice President at Meta APAC. The new reporting hierarchy is a shift for the firm, which earlier saw India executives directly report to the U.S. leadership. In 2020, Devanathan moved to lead the company’s gaming efforts in the APAC region. “India is at the forefront of digital adoption and Meta has launched many of our top products, such as Reels and Business Messaging, in India first. We are proud to have recently launched JioMart on WhatsApp, which is our first end-to-end shopping experience in India,” said Marne Levine, Chief Business Officer of Meta, in a statement. “I’m pleased to welcome Sandhya as our new leader for India. Sandhya has a proven track record of scaling businesses, building exceptional and inclusive teams, driving product innovation and building strong partnerships. We are thrilled to have her lead Meta’s continued growth in India.” (More to follow) Meta appoints new India head amid key departures by Manish Singh originally published on TechCrunch
