MENLO PARK, California: Peter Thiel, a Silicon Valley billionaire and adviser to former President Donald Trump, is leaving the board of directors of Facebook parent company Meta.
The company said Monday that Thiel will stay on until Meta’s next shareholder meeting later this year, where he will not stand for reelection.
Thiel joined Facebook’s board in 2005, a year after the company was founded and seven years before its made its debut on Wall Street. But he has been an increasingly polarizing figure among the company’s directors due to his conservative politics.
