Mark D’Arcy, Head of Global Business Marketing and Chief Creative Officer at Facebook, is leaving the social media giant after over 10 years of building up the brand’s social media advertising business.
His departure follows Carolyn Everson’s exit, who was a lead within D’Arcy’s division. Everson left her role as VP of the Global Business Group in August to become Instacart’s President. She joins another former Facebook exec, Fidji Simo, who now leads the grocery delivery app as CEO. In March, David Fischer, another decade-long career exec at Facebook, announced his departure as Chief Revenue Officer for later in 2021.
D’Arcy joined Facebook in 2011 from Time Warner’s Global Media Group, where he served as President and Chief Creative Officer. His first role at the company was as Director of Global Creative Solutions.
He then went on to lead Facebook’s in-house creative strategy team, Creative Shop, for seven years. He’s been working in his current role for the past three years after being asked to step up and co-lead the global business group with Everson.
D’Arcy’s last day is September 7. Michelle Klein will lead the global business marketing team in the interim. Nicola Mendelsohn, Head of the Global Business Group’s Europe, Middle East and Africa region has been filling in for Everson’s role in the meantime.
