Facebook has announced that Chris Cox, formerly the company’s VP of Product, has been promoted to the position of Chief Product Officer. This doesn’t reflect an organizational change, but will fortify his position as a chief member of the Facebook team. Cox is the first person to hold the role of CPO for Facebook.

A Facebook spokesperson commented on the announcement to Inside Facebook:

Chris Cox’s elevation to Chief Product Officer is a reflection of the major role he plays in overseeing the products and features at Facebook. Chris has been instrumental in shaping the evolution of people’s experience using Facebook, our culture and our company, and he’ll continue to do the same as CPO.

Cox currently leads Facebook Product Management, Design and Marketing teams around the world. He joined Facebook in 2005 as a software engineer and built the early versions of key Facebook products such as News Feed. Cox has also served as Facebook’s Director of Human Resources.
