Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and one the company’s directors is leaving to start her own company, Facebook said Wednesday. Zuckerberg was leaving to start a “new media firm to help companies become more social” called “RtoZ Media.”
Tekedia checked the site and it is still under construction. It is very obvious that Randi will rake millions in venture funds. “My Site This is my site description.”
“We can confirm Randi has decided to leave Facebook to start her own company,” a Facebook spokesman said. “We are all grateful for her important service.”
In her resignation letter, she said she has spent the past six years at Facebook “innovating and pushing the media industry forward by introducing new concepts. “We have made incredible progress, but there is still much to be done and other ways I can affect change,” she continued.
“Now is the perfect time for me to move outside of Facebook to build a company focused on the exciting trends underway in the media industry.” Zuckerberg noted that Facebook will “clearly be a central element in all of my projects” and that she would “continue to be a strong, vocal evangelist for the most incredible social platform ever created.”
