Stan Chudnovsky, also known as Facebook Messenger boss, to resign next year

Stan Chudnovsky is the VP of Messenger at Meta, previously known as Facebook. Stan was previously VP of Growth and Global Strategy at PayPal, following the acquisition of IronPearl, a company he co-founded, in 2013. Jiff, NFX, Ooga Labs, and Wonderhill are just a few of the successful firms Stan co-founded. Prior to that, Stan worked on the development of Tickle Inc., one of the earliest social media firms, which he expanded to become one of the world's largest websites by 2003.

Stan is a native of Moscow who earned his engineering degrees there and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1994.

On Tuesday, Stan Chudnovsky, the company's Messenger chief who is also in charge of the integration of the social media network's messaging apps, announced his future plan in a Facebook post, by posting that he will resign in the second quarter of 2022. Chudnovsky has been the product head for communications at Meta, for almost seven years. In 2018, he was promoted to Messenger Manager.

In a Facebook post, he also stated that he will be departing Meta at some time next year. He also stated that he has no plans to retire, but that he is looking forward to a good, lengthy break.

Mr. Chudnovsky was unavailable for comment at the time of news release. Mr. Chudnovsky's announcement was verified by Jennifer Hakes, Messenger's communications director.

The resignation come in the wake of findings in The Wall Street Journal's Facebook Files series that indicated the social media corporation was aware of faults in its platforms that were causing harm to some of its users.

Mr. Zuckerberg has stated that the criticism misrepresents the firm he co-founded. Loredana Crisan, who will supervise Messenger, Instagram direct messaging, and Messenger Kids, and Maha Saber, who will oversee remote presence products, will share his duties at Meta. In a response to Chudnovsky's article, Mark Zuckerberg expressed his gratitude for his leadership and everything he helped develop for our community.
