After the announcement of Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger leaving the social media giant, new Head of Instagram has been appointed. Starting the 1st of October, former VP of Product Adam Mosseri is leading the network’s team.

As Instagram noticed in a blog post, “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”.

As TechCrunch reported earlier, Instagram’s founders announced that they were leaving the Facebook corporation after facing tensions with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. According to sources, Mosseri was first in line for the role of the Head of Instagram.
