“It’s not planned,” Zuckerberg told CNN Business when asked if he was considering relinquishing his role as Chairman of the Board.
He also defended the company’s number two, Sheryl Sandberg, who has been heavily criticized for managing the company’s recent crises.
“Sheryl is really an important part of this business and is working hard on the many issues we face,” said the CEO of Facebook.
“She’s been an important partner for me for the past 10 years. I am really proud of the work we have done together and I hope we will work together in the decades to come, “he added.
Facebook is entangled this year in several cases. The company is still cashing the effects of Russian interference on its platform in the US presidential election of 2016. The scandal of the exploitation by Cambridge Analytica firm of data of users without their knowledge for political purposes is added in the balance sheet, just like a security breach that led to the hacking of millions of accounts.
