Dilpreeta Vasudeva, head of marketing at Meta is one of the executives from the senior leadership team who has been affected by Meta’s layoffs in India. The layoffs are part of a restructuring effort to streamline operations and adapt to changing market conditions.

Recently, members of the senior leadership such as Avinash Pant director of marketing for India, and Saket Jha Saurabh, director of media partnerships, were also among those who were affected by the layoffs.

Alongside layoffs, the internet giants have also been seeing a series of resignations from the leadership team. Manish Chopra, who served as the director and head of Meta's partnership initiatives in India, announced his departure earlier this month after spending four and a half years at the company. This adds to the succession of notable exits from Meta India, following the exits of Ajit Mohan, the former India head, and Rajiv Aggarwal, the public policy head, both of whom left the organization towards the end of the previous year.

Vasudeva, who had joined tech giant and had taken up the role in July last year, announced her departure via LinkedIn.

Her post read, “Not the kind of impact I was hoping for. It's with immense gratitude that I sign-off from Meta for a rewarding journey, fine culture and such stellar colleagues. Peace, love, happiness and many successes to my now ex-meta mates!”

Vasudeva is armed with an experience of two decades and started her career at Radisson in the client relations department. From there, she moved to Tech Mahindra and took up the role of assistant manager, global leadership cadre. She joined Times Internet as product manager, communities, and then at Microsoft, she was the senior manager marketing.

She held various marketing roles at Tata Play, Reliance Industries and Bharti Enterprises, where she held the roles of head of digital marketing, head of marketing - Jio Studios and head of marketing transformation, financial services. She was also the founder of CMO Access, a new-age solution for accelerating growth and embracing transformation.

Vasudeva holds a masters in business administration in strategy and marketing from Indian School of Business, a post graduate diploma in law from The Indian Society of International Law and a masters in public administration from Panjab University.
