The spokesman declined to say why Pinette left, citing the Meta policy of not commenting on personnel matters.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on Pinette’s departure on Friday.

Pinette was named vice president of global communications in April 2019, according to the company’s website.

Prior to joining the company, Pinette headed communications for Gates Ventures, the private office and innovation laboratory of Bill Gates, for five years, and was head of Asia Pacific Communications for Google. He also held a number of management positions for product and corporate communications at Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O).
