Facebook’s Sandberg Pushes Back on Calls for Leadership Changes

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg on Wednesday acknowledged that the company needs to win back trust over its security and privacy missteps, although she doesn’t believe it needs to make changes to its top leadership, according to CNBC.

Speaking in an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Ms. Sandberg said CEO Mark Zuckerberg should remain both CEO and chairman, an arrangement criticized by shareholders. She also said she plans to remain in the No. 2 role at the company and doesn’t believe Facebook should adopt a subscription model, saying it would prevent many from being able to use the service. Facebook’s quest to rebuild trust, it seems, won’t include changing much about the leadership and business model that contributed to its current predicament.
