Facebook is shaking up the leadership of its sales team dedicated to small and medium businesses, a key part of its advertising group that the company has made a top priority for the year, according to Business Insider.
Dan Levy, the vice president of small business, is taking a new role as vice president of product on ads. His sales responsibilities were divided between two existing Facebook executives, Carolyn Everson and Rich Rao, Business Insider said. It is unclear when or why the switch occurred, but multiple sources told The Information last fall that Mr. Levy was moving to a more product-focused role.
Facebook’s recent financial report was a reminder that the company is still selling a lot of advertising, despite a barrage of privacy and security concerns about its service.
The personnel changes are a sign that it is looking for ways to best keep that growth going.
