“My time at Pinterest has been truly special. I’m so proud of the incredible team we’ve built and what we’ve accomplished together. I’ve been inspired by the impact that Pinterest has had in helping people explore their passions and plan their future and will be rooting for the company’s continued success while I think about what’s next for me.”
