Facebook’s Building 8 head, Regina Dugan Set To Leave Next Year

It’s only been 18 months since Facebook enticed Google’s advanced technology lead, Regina Dugan, to work at the social network’s secret hardware lab, Building 8.

Dugan detailed in a Facebook post that she would be leaving to focus on “building and leading a new endeavor.” She will be staying in her position until “early next year” to help the team transition into 2018.

Before joining Facebook, Dugan was the head of Google’s Advanced Technology and Products team and was the director of DARPA before that.

In August, it was reported that Facebook veteran Andrew Bosworth would be leading consumer hardware efforts at the company in a new role, overseeing teams like Building 8 and Oculus. It is not immediately clear who will be taking over the reins of the Building 8 lab from Dugan.

We have reached out to Facebook for more information.
