Snapchat’s revenue boss Mike Randall has waved goodbye to the photo-messaging app just seven months after joining the company.

The former Facebook director was tempted away from the social network last June, but his union with Snapchat has proved short lived, as he departed the firm last week.

“We thank Mike for his many contributions and we wish him well in the future,” a Snapchat spokesperson told Re/code.

Just last month, Snapchat appointed leading tech banker Imran Khan as its first chief strategy officer. He had previously been Credit Suisse’s head of internet banking and has helped develop the Swiss finance outfit’s presence within the technology sector.

Khan has also been involved in securing lucrative deals by advising some of the fastest-rising tech company initial public offerings (IPOs), most notably Alibaba.
