Days after Snap announced the departure of his CFO, reports have emerged that the company's HR chief was asked to leave after an internal investigation late last year that led to the firing of his global security head
The Wall Street Journal reports that Snap fired global security chief Francis Racioppi late last year after an investigation uncovered that he had engaged in an inappropriate relationship with an outside contractor he had hired. After the relationship ended, Racioppi denied any wrongdoing in a comment to the Journal. A report from Cheddar also adds that one of Racioppi's assistants was fired for helping to cover up the scandal.
The investigation's findings reportedly contributed to CEO Evan Spiegel asking HR's head Jason Halbert to step down.
While Snap's executive team has seen two high-profile executions departing from a single incident, Snap's executive team seems to be losing talent from its ranks at a quickening pace. did not comment on the reports
