Facebook India's managing director Kirthiga Reddy has stepped down from her post. In a Facebook post, Reddy says she will exit in 6-12 months and go back to the US.
"When my family relocated to India, we knew that we would move back to the US some day. It's a bittersweet moment to share that the return timeframe is coming up in the next 6-12 months. Our two daughters start high school and middle school this coming year - which serves as a natural transition point to make this move back," Reddy says in the post.
She also describes her future plans in the post and says she has "begun to explore new opportunities at Facebook back at Menlo Park". "Over the last six years, starting as the first employee for Facebook in India, I have had the privilege to be part of our amazing growth journey," Reddy says.
