Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, said, "The lead independent director is an important role for us and we've been looking for a leader who can bring significant oversight and governance experience. I'm confident Bob is going to make our board and our company better and I'm looking forward to working with him as we continue to build important social infrastructure to bring the world closer together."

"I am excited to take on this leadership role on Facebook's board, as the company continues to improve the ways technology and innovation can bring us together. This moment in particular is an incredibly important time to help people connect. I look forward to working with Mark, Sheryl, and the rest of the board to further the company's mission," said Kimmitt.

Ambassador Kimmitt has held a wide variety of senior positions within international business, finance, and public policy. Kimmitt served as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Treasury (2005 – 2009), where he was involved in all aspects of the Treasury's policies and played a key leadership role on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

Zients said, "Facebook is one of the most significant companies in the global economy and this is a particularly important time for people to feel connected to each other. I wish Mark, the leadership team, and the dedicated Facebook employees the best as they continue to make progress and move forward. I have decided to step down from the board in order to devote more time to my business and other professional engagements."
