Meta appoints associate GC Competition & Compliance for EMEA

The new company brand for Facebook app and technologies has announced the appointment of Catherine Wylie as its new associate general counsel Competition & Compliance for EMEA, joining from Allen & Overy London

-

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in 2021 that the social media giant changed the name of its holding company to Meta, in a rebrand that comes as the company faces a series of public relations crises. Zuckerberg revealed the new name at Facebook’s annual AR/VR conference, where he outlined the company’s virtual-reality vision for the future. The CEO sketched his plans to build the “metaverse” – a digital world built over our own, comprising virtual reality headsets and augmented reality.

Catherine Wylie joins Meta from Allen & Overy London office, where she was a senior associate in the Antitrust/Competition area. She holds more than 11 years of experience in EU and Competition Law and Commercial, Consumer and Company regulations, having worked at Weil, Gotshal & Manges and at Berwion Leighton Paisner.

She is a Law graduate from University of Oxford and holds a Master´s degree in EU Competition Law from King´s College London.

This appointment comes at a time when Meta warned that it may shut Facebook and Instagram in Europe, coming down to European data regulations that prevent Meta from transferring, storing and processing Europeans’ data on US-based servers.
