Expressing her confidence in Meta’s current strength and future prospects, Sandberg stated, “Meta business is strong and well-positioned for the future, so this feels like the right time to step away.” She also mentioned her intention to continue serving as an adviser to the company.

In response to Sandberg’s decision, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed anticipation for “a new chapter together.”

Sheryl Sandberg played a pivotal role at Meta Platforms, serving as the Chief Operating Officer for more than 14 years and contributing an additional 12 years on the company’s board. Her tenure as Meta’s operations chief concluded in 2022.

As the second-in-command to founder Mark Zuckerberg, Sandberg was a prominent figure at Meta and a key architect of its ads-based business model, which has faced criticism over the years.

Throughout the company’s various controversies, Sandberg staunchly defended Facebook, consistently asserting that the leadership was learning from mistakes and refining tools to better regulate harmful content.

Before her tenure at Meta Platforms, Sandberg held the position of Vice President of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google. She also served as the Chief of Staff for the United States Treasury Department under former President Bill Clinton.
