Facebook’s parent company’s dismissal affects Belgian employees

The announced round of layoffs of Meta Platforms, Facebook’s parent company, also affects employees in Brussels. The commercial department was dismissed with immediate effect.

The sales team in Brussels was dismissed with immediate effect. The news of the layoffs was communicated to the thirty employees of Meta at the beginning of this week. The commercial activities will be transferred to Ireland and the Netherlands. Alexis Lebedoff, who has led Meta’s activities in Belgium since 2012, is also dismissed.

The decision is part of the global wave of layoffs that Meta announced earlier this week: Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in a letter that more than 11,000 Meta employees are losing their jobs. Facebook’s parent company is located in Regent Park, the office building a few meters from the royal palace and the US embassy.
