Meta’s Adam Mosseri, Nick Clegg Relocate to London
Nick Clegg, Meta Platforms Inc.’s president of global affairs, has become the latest top executive from the social media giant to relocate to London.
Clegg will split his time between California and London, which will be a base for traveling to represent Meta’s interests in government relations and policy, a spokesperson said.
The head of Meta’s Instagram business, Adam Mosseri, will also move to London, which serves as the company’s largest engineering base outside of the U.S. Alex Schultz, Meta’s head of marketing and analytics, has also relocated to the British capital, according to his LinkedIn profile.
The U.K. has been striving to attract tech talent, and Meta’s location in King’s Cross was opened by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in 2022. There are more than 4000 employees in London, with a dedicated Instagram team.
Meta’s Nick Clegg was on the Centre Stage at Web Summit 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal. This took place on Tuesday November 2, 2021.

Financial Times first reported the news.
Clegg, who was previously the leader and deputy prime minster of the Liberal Democrats, joined Facebook in 2018 to become vice president for global affairs. After assuming the role, Clegg moved with his family to California.
Meta has previously said that employees who leave Silicon Valley may face pay cuts, but the spokesperson didn’t confirm whether Clegg’s pay would be docked due to the move.
Along with other Meta executives, Clegg’s move represents a shift to remote leadership. Clegg announced in June that all employees would be able to submit applications to work remotely. According to the Financial Times, Guy Rosen, Chief Information Security Officer is currently based in Israel. Mark Zuckerberg, Chief Executive Officer, spends a lot of time in Hawaii.
