Facebook has appointed Marne Levine, the company’s former Vice President of Global Partnerships, as its first-ever Chief Business Officer.
Having first joined Facebook in 2010, Ms Marne will reportedly be in charge of a new business unit that will oversee Facebook’s advertising businesses and global partnerships.
Taking to the social media platform to share the news, she wrote, “It is a privilege to be leading a business that enables economic and social change for our global partners, helping them to create their brand, build their community, and grow their business through the innovative solutions we offer across our platforms.”
Looking back on her time with the company so far, Ms Levine continued, “in July, I will have been at Facebook for eleven years. I’ve loved every minute of it. I spent most of my early career in the public sector, working on policy areas that could drive economic growth, create and save jobs, and help people get access to financial services because I thought that was the best way to have a positive impact on people’s lives,” adding that one of the main attractions for her when it came to joining Facebook was seeing the way that businesses and partners could grow on the platform and the jobs that were created as a result.
“I believe in Facebook’s mission even more than I did that first time I walked through the door. I’m proud of how, in the last year, we’ve assisted in economic relief efforts, connecting our partners — from the largest of businesses to the aspiring creators — to their communities at a time when it was needed most,” she wrote, continuing that “I’m especially proud to be at one of the most innovative technology companies that continues to build new experiences that support our partners and their long-term growth.”
