Chris Cox returned to the role of chief product officer at Facebook that he relinquished in March 2019, which he had left amid speculation of a disagreement with CEO Mark Zuckerberg over the company’s strategy shift to focus on private, encrypted messaging and communications services.

Cox said in a Facebook post that he contacted Zuckerberg awhile ago to express his interest in returning, and he will indeed do so on June 22.
