Tom Arrix, head of Facebook's U.S. sales team
Early Facebook ad salesman Tom Arrix, pictured right, said on July 16, 2013 that he was leaving Facebook -- in a Facebook post, of course. Arrix started in 2006, back when Facebook had just 8 million users, and became the company's head of North American sales. After seven years with the company, the pioneering ad executive said he had completed the goals he set out to do and was ready to move on.
"We crafted a vision that allowed marketers to better connect their brands with people, we started from scratch and built a multibillion-dollar business, we adopted and excelled at mobile advertising faster than anyone could imagine, and we have the most passionate and amazing teammates around the world," Arrix wrote.
