Meta’s Head of Partnerships in India Manish Chopra resigns

Manish Chopra, Meta’s Director and Head of Partnerships in India, has announced his departure from his role at the social media giant after 4.5 years. Chopra said he would help with the transition over the next few weeks.

Chopra wrote in his LinkedIn post, “The recent months have been difficult times for everyone in more ways than one. I know that this team has given a lot of attention and selflessly helped each other… I am now looking forward to a new phase in my professional life. I will share more details in the coming time.

Looking back at his time at the company, Chopra said he began with the opportunity to lead partnership efforts in India, which was emerging as one of Meta’s most important markets in 2019.

He added, “I am grateful to the company for trusting me to build on our efforts to drive growth and engagement across Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. I am very proud of the work the team and I have done to be an ally to creators and businesses across the country,” he added.

Chopra from Meta has decided to leave the company at a time when the tech company is witnessing significant churn at the top in India.

In November last year, Meta’s India head Ajit Mohan left the company to join rival social media platform Snap. Following Mohan’s departure, Chopra served as the interim head of the company until Sandhya Devanathan takes over as Meta’s India head on January 1, 2023.

A little over a week after Mohan’s exit, Abhijit Bose, who was WhatsApp’s India head, also quit after a stint of nearly four years. A few weeks after Mohan’s departure from the company, Meta said that Devanathan was being appointed Vice President of Meta India.

The company said in an official statement at the time that Devanathan will focus on bringing the organization’s business and revenue priorities together to serve partners and customers while supporting the long-term growth of our business and commitment to India.
