Snap Sets New Human Resources Chief

Santa Monica-based Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, said late Tuesday that it has named Darcie Henry as the company’s new Chief Human Resources Officer. According to Snap, Henry will join the company on July 6th, as current Chief People Officer Lara Sweet is retiring. Henry was most recently Amazon’s VP HR, Global Consumer and Operations, and had been at Amazon since 1998. Snap said Henry will lead its talent acquisition and management and total rewards programs, its diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, as well as other functions in support of hiring, retaining and “inspiring team members” at Snap.
