TikTok CEO Kevin Mayer resigns: Reports

Aug 27, 2020 11:52 IST

TikTok CEO Kevin Mayer has resigned, just over three months after taking the post, the Financial Times reported early Thursday. Mayer made the decision to step down after President Donald Trump ordered the popular app to be banned in the US unless parent company ByteDance sold it within 90 days, the report said. Mayer announced his departure in an internal email viewed by the Financial Times. TikTok’s general manager Vanessa Pappas will take over the position in the interim, according to the newspaper.
