Facebook’s PR Head Stepping Down

Brandee Barker, Facebook’s director of corporate communications, is stepping down from her post effective December 10. She was with the company for four years.

In a portion of Facebook‘s statement published on AllThingsD, the company confirms Barker’s departure, saying that she’s stepping down “to start a communications consulting business focused on early stage tech companies.”

Barker was on maternity leave earlier this year, only recently returning.

“I had a pretty deep evaluation when I was away from the company that what I am good at and what I like is working with early-stage companies and the teams,” she told AllThingsD.
