Facebook parent Meta promotes David Ginsberg to vice president, head of global communications and public affairs, reporting to Nick Clegg who will now serve as Meta’s president of public affairs. The moves come as Meta reorganizes its communications and public affairs team. Ginsberg was previously vice president of product, choice and competition at the company. Before joining Facebook in 2017, he was chief strategy officer at Intel. While at Intel, he took time off to lead debate prep efforts for then-vice president Biden during the 2012 campaign. As another part of the reorganization, Tucker Bounds, currently a vice president of communications at the company, will lead the company’s global public affairs team.
