Re/code reported that Buckley is departing his post at the social network to work full-time at a company he co-founded in 2012, New Frontier Foods.

According to Re/code, Marooney will handle the entire communications team on a day-to-day basis, reporting to president of communications and public policy Elliot Schrage.

Re/code shared Buckley’s message to his co-workers:

Facebook has been the best job I’ve ever had, and it’s crazy to think about leaving, but my little startup has a chance to be more than little—and I have to go for it.

According to Re/code, New Frontier Foods is best-known for its Ocean’s Halo seaweed snacks.
