Ajit Mohan, vice president and managing director, Meta India, has quit the firm with immediate effect, according to several reports. The reports further reveal that Mohan has joined Snap Inc as president, Asia-Pacific. Mohan has been associated with Meta for about four years.

Manish Chopra, director and head of partnerships at Meta India, will take over as interim head, a Meta spokesperson told Reuters.

Prior to Meta, Mohan was the CEO for Hotstar about three years. He has also worked with organisations such as Star TV Network, The Wall Street Journal, McKinsey & Company, among others.

During Mohan’s tenure, Meta navigated stricter calls from the Indian authorities to regulate content including hiring local nodal officers, and worked to secure a peer-to-peer payments license for WhatsApp messaging app.

Meta will work on a transition plan over the next few weeks and vice president for Asia Pacific, Dan Neary, would “soon” be in India and host an all-hands meeting, Nicola Mendelsohn, vice president of the global business group at Meta, said in an internal message to staff.
