By H.JanGra June 2, 2022

Former Managing Global Client Partner and Emerging Markets Lead for Global Partnerships at Facebook Kirthiga Reddy said that Sheryl Sandberg’s stepping away from the company is the “end of an era.”

Reddy said in a LinkedIn post that Sandberg led with a combination of authenticity, vulnerability and tireless commitment to Facebook’s mission.

The former Lead for Global Partnership at the social media behemoth said that Sheryl taught her building a business of unprecedented scale and how to invest in people.

She recounted an encounter with Sandberg and wrote, “When I was starting my role as Head of Facebook India and their first full-time employee in India, 

I asked her for any advice on how I can have outsized impact

she said, “Kirthiga, your first task is building our global operations office in India. You come from the product world and haven’t grown up in the operations world

Make sure you understand the nitty-gritty of what it takes to build global operations. That’s what will give you the foundation to lead and the power to make decisions at a 20,000 feet level.””
