Bret Taylor, Chief Technology Officer leaves Facebook for a new start up

Bret Taylor, Facebook's Chief Technology Officer just announced on facebook that he is leaving facebook to start a new company with Kevin Gibbs, a close friend of his.

He has not disclosed what kind of start up it will be but Kevin Gibbs is a Stanford graduate and works at Google

Here's Bret's facebook post just posted recently:

" I wanted to let you all know that I'll be leaving Facebook later this summer. I'm sad to be leaving, but I'm excited to be starting a company with my friend Kevin Gibbs.

While a transition like this is never easy, I'm extremely confident in the teams and leadership we have in place. I'm very proud of our recent accomplishments in our platform and mobile products, from Open Graph and App Center toFacebook Camera and our iOS integration. I'm even more excited for the world to see all the amazing things these teams have coming.

I've learned more than I ever imagined in my time at Facebook. I'm also extremely grateful for my relationship with all of the amazing people I've worked with here.

I want to give a special thanks to Mark Zuckerberg. You've not only been my boss for the past three years, but my mentor and one of my closest friends.

Thanks to all of you at Facebook for the most incredible three years of my life." 

I believe that Bret has done an excellent job at facebook, and I wish him all the best of luck in his new start up..
