The head of Facebook’s Building 8 unit is on her way out of the building.

Regina Dugan, the former Google executive who joined Facebook in April 2016 to lead its connectivity hardware group, announced her impending departure in a Facebook post.

Dugan wrote, “Today I am announcing that early next year, I will be leaving Facebook to focus on building and leading a new endeavor. I will be working with leadership over the next several months to ensure that Building 8 makes a smooth transition into 2018.”


She did not offer any further details on her next move.

Former vice president of ads and business platform Andrew Bosworth began overseeing Facebook’s consumer hardware efforts—including Building 8 and virtual reality unit Oculus VR—in August.
