Manish Chopra, Director and Head of Partnerships at Meta, has moved on.
He was associated with Meta for 4.5 years and led partnerships for Facebook India across media/content, platform, workplace, payments and BD/growth for Facebook's family of products/platforms.
The previous senior leadership exits at Meta included former India head Ajit Mohan, public policy head Rajiv Aggarwal and Abhijit Bose, the head of WhatsApp India.
Following Mohan's departure, Chopra became the interim head for a brief period of two months until January 1, 2023. Post that, Sandhya Devanathan took over as Meta's India head.
Chopra took to LinkedIn and wrote, “I am stepping down from my role at Meta and will help with the transition over the next few weeks.”
He further wrote, “My ride began with this amazing opportunity to lead our Partnerships efforts in India, which was emerging as one of Meta’s most important markets in 2019. I am grateful to the company for trusting me with building out our efforts to drive growth & engagement across Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. I am super proud of the work the team and I have done to become an ally for creators and businesses around the country. There are so many people who have been so critically influential in guiding my team and me, that I cannot do justice by calling out only a few. My heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you! To my team, it’s been my privilege to know you and learn from you. More power to you, always!”
