Just days after Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger unexpectedly announced their resignation from Facebook, the social media giant has today named its new boss: Adam Mosseri.
Mosseri is Instagram’s current VP of product and would be taking the position of “Head of Instagram”. He had joined Facebook as a designer in 2008.
“We are thrilled to hand over the reins to a product leader with a strong design background and a focus on craft and simplicity — as well as a deep understanding of the importance of community,” founders Systrom and Krieger wrote, adding: “These are the values and principles that have been essential to us at Instagram since the day we started, and we’re excited for Adam to carry them forward.”
