WhatsApp’s chief business officer Neeraj Arora has quit the company. Arora revealed the news via a Facebook post on Tuesday.

With the exit from the company, Arora has joined a stream of top executives who have quit Facebook and its group companies recently. Arora joined WhatsApp in 2011 before it was acquired by Facebook for $19 billion in 2014.

In a Facebook post, Arora said, "Time flies for sure but not memories. It is hard to believe that it has been seven years since Jan and Brian got me onboard at WhatsApp, and it has been one hell of a ride!"

"I've been blessed to work with a small set of talented people and see how maniacal focus can create something magical which is loved by billions of people. It is time to move on, but I cannot be more proud of how WhatsApp continues to touch people in so many different ways every day. I am confident that WhatsApp will continue to be the simple, secure & trusted communication product for years to come," he added.

Facebook has also lost Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in recent months.

"I'm going to be taking some time off to recharge and spend time with family. I am deeply indebted to Jan and Brian, who entrusted me to be their business companion for so many years and I am thankful to each one of you who has supported me along the way and made this exciting journey possible," Arora said.
