Sandhya Devanathan Vice President of Meta

The American multinational social media company Meta (formerly Facebook) has appointed Sandhya Devanathan as the Vice President of Meta India on 17 November 2022. She will be responsible for the Indian operations and will take the place of Ajit Mohan who quit the company to join Snap Inc.

Sandhya Devanathan is currently the head of Meta’s gaming vertical for Asia-Pacific. She will take charge as Vice President of Meta India from 1 January 2023. 

Her appointment comes two days after Meta India's director of public policy, Rajiv Aggarwal and WhatsApp India head Abhijit Bose left the company. Two weeks ago, Meta India's country head Ajit Mohan resigned. Earlier this month, Meta laid off 11,000 people worldwide, including India.

Meta, which is considered to be one of the five Big Tech companies of the United States of America, is the owner of WhatsApp and Instagram. It is also facing a decline in its earnings and is struggling as companies cut advertising budgets in the face of economic uncertainty, changes to Apple's privacy settings hurt its targeted ads, and competition from rivals such as TikTok is eating into its market share.

Founder and CEO of Meta: Mark Zuckerberg.
