Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg may not be competing at the Rio Olympics later this month but he has been doing his marathon with Nigerian-born Facebook executive Ime Archibong, Facebook’s director of product partnerships.
Ime , so far has been keeping a relatively low profile, but his role at Facebook is increasingly important to help Zuckerberg achieve his goals, and to help the company maintain its growth. He spends his year racking up frequent flier miles, traveling the world to meet with Facebook’s community of 9,000 developers across 136 companies.
Mark captioned their picture “”Thanks Ime for pretending like we run at the same pace. Fist bump at mile 9! #SFHalfMarathon”
Ime once said about his role “If your mission is to create a world where people are more connected and people have the power to share, and you’re aiming to connect everyone, you can’t just stop at the folks that are here in North America or the folks that are on the internet right now, because we are actually in the minority worldwide,” said Archibong.
