Mark Zuckerberg’s sister, Randi, joined his company just one year after it began and long before he made his first billion dollars. Today, at the height of his success, she has decided to leave his company and start her own. What industry is she focused on? What else, but social media.
(Randi) Zuckerberg has decided that one social media mogul in the family is not enough. She has also made it crystal clear that she believes there are still plenty of opportunities for companies looking to find success online.
So what does Zuckerberg know about the future of social media the rest of us don’t? Nothing. Unless you are still one of those people who believe that social media is just a passing fad.
With her goal of embracing all forms of social media, and her wealth of experience, Zuckerberg stands a very good chance of finding financial and professional success. Of course hers is not the only company around that can help your business leverage success using social media. There are plenty of other companies out there doing the exact same thing who have been at it for years.
Will Zuckerberg bring a new set of skills to the table? Maybe. Will she make full use of her connections to the world’s largest social media network for her clients? If she’s smart.
There is no guarantee of success in business today, but the odds certainly seem to be in her favor.
Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook’s marketing director as well as Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s sister, is leaving Facebook. Six years after joining her brother’s seven-year-old company, Randi is moving on to start a new media firm called RtoZ Media (clearly a play on her name) that will help businesses become more social.
“We can confirm Randi has decided to leave Facebook to start her own company,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “We are all grateful for her important service.”
Randi further confirmed the news via her Twitter account: “It is with mixed emotions that I announced my departure from Facebook today to launch my own initiative. More info soon… dthin.gs/oWMTHy”
Randi has been a high-profile and charismatic personality both inside the social networking company and in Silicon Valley, according to All Things Digital, which also obtained Randi’s resignation letter (embedded in full below). She has been on maternity leave for the last three months, after having her first child, and being away from the rapid-fire pace at Facebook reportedly gave her time to reflect on what she wants to do in the next phase of her career.
