Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, has appointed Dave Wehner as the Chief Strategy Officer of the platform.
Zuckerberg also appointed Susan Li as Meta’s new Chief Financial Officer.
He made the appointments known via a statement on his Facebook page.
The Facebook founder, who congratulated Susan and Dave on the new roles, wrote: “I want to share a couple of updates to our company leadership that we’ve been working towards for a few years and that I think will help us better achieve our goals.
“First, I’ve asked Dave Wehner to take on a new role as our Chief Strategy Officer, where he’ll oversee our strategy and corporate development.
“After 10 years at Meta and 25 years in the technology sector, Dave has a unique understanding of the industry and market dynamics that I’ve increasingly come to rely on – especially as our own opportunities, challenges, partnerships, and internal organization grow more complex.
“These areas will benefit from a more disciplined strategy process. Dave has done an excellent job as CFO, including actively developing a strong leadership bench, and I’m looking forward to working closely with him on strategy in his new role.
“When Dave transitions into his new role at the start of November, Susan Li will be promoted to be Meta’s new Chief Financial Officer.
“Susan has played a key role on our finance team for 14 years – helping take our company public in 2012, overseeing the forecasting and budgeting for our business, and proving herself a talented and dedicated leader.
“For the last couple of years, Susan has been working closely with Dave to engage regularly with our investors and analysts as a trusted voice on our business. We have been working on this succession plan for several years now and I am confident that Susan is ready to step into this role.
“Congratulations to both Susan and Dave on your new roles! I’m excited to keep working closely with both of you as we grow our business and shape our strategy to build for the future,” Zuckerberg stated.
