A senior Snap human resources executive, Kathy Mandato, abruptly left the company earlier this month, just five months after joining, said several people familiar with the situation. Ms. Mandato is the latest in a string of female executives who didn’t last long at Snap, including three others in HR roles as well as former COO Emily White.
Ms. Mandato, a human resources veteran, had joined Snap in June, after a decade at NBCUniversal. (Her hiring wasn’t related to NBCU’s $500 million investment in Snap earlier this year.) She had reported to Jason Halbert, Snap’s VP of People. The reasons for her exit aren’t known. A Snap spokesman confirmed her departure.
