TikTok’s longstanding COO V Pappas just announced plans to leave their executive role at the company.
Pappas, who previously held positions as the global head of creative insights and audience development at YouTube, has been with TikTok for nearly five years.
“Given all the successes reached at TikTok, I finally feel the time is right to move on and refocus on my entrepreneurial passions,” Pappas wrote on Twitter. “… It has been an exhilarating ride with so many celebratory milestones, moments and industry ‘firsts.”
Pappas, who came out as nonbinary earlier this year and uses she and they pronouns, said that they plan to stay on at TikTok in an advisory role as the company stabilizes in light of the departure.
