Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger have announced Adam Mosseri as new head of Instagram.
Mosseri, the current vice president of product, will take on the new role immediately.
The co-founders commented:
Adam began his career as a designer, managed his own design consultancy, and then joined the Facebook design team in 2008. Since he joined, he moved from design into product management, and spent time working on Mobile, then News Feed and, most recently, we recruited him to Instagram. In his role leading Instagram, Adam will oversee all functions of the business and will recruit a new executive team including a head of engineering, head of product and head of operations.
Since we announced our departure, many people have asked us what we hope for the future of Instagram. To us, the most important thing is keeping our community – all of you – front and centre in all that Instagram does. We believe that Adam will hold true to these values and that Instagram will continue to thrive.
