Facebook's former chief product officer, Chris Cox, announced in a post Thursday that he is returning to his previous position in the company, which includes monitoring key Facebook apps, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.
"Facebook and our products have never been more relevant to our future. It's the place that I know best, that helped me build it up, and the best place to roll up my sleeves and look around to see help." Cox wrote.
Cox, one of Mark Zuckerberg's top lieutenants, left the company in March 2019 because of "artistic differences" with the CEO because of his plans to make Facebook more privacy-oriented.
Cox's return comes on the same day that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg announced that the company's chief diversity officer, Maxine Williams, will report directly to Facebook when Facebook shuffles its management team.
