WhatsApp’s chief business officer Neeraj Arora has quit the company. Arora announced the news on his Twitter and Facebook handle as well. He had been associated with WhatsApp for the last seven years. In his Facebook post, Arora wrote,

“Time flies for sure but not memories. It is hard to believe that it has been seven years since Jan and Brian got me onboard at WhatsApp, and it has been one hell of a ride!”

Arora said that it was time for him to move on from WhatsApp, and he was proud of how the app continues to “touch people in so many different ways every day.”

“I’ve been blessed to work with a small set of talented people and see how maniacal focus can create something magical which is loved by billions of people…I am confident that WhatsApp will continue to be the simple, secure & trusted communication product for years to come,” he added.

The WhatApp executive did not outline his next venture. He said in his post that he plans to take time off and spend some more time with his family.

“I am deeply indebted to Jan and Brian, who entrusted me to be their business companion for so many years and I am thankful to each one of you who has supported me along the way and made this exciting journey possible,” he wrote.
