Instacart President Carolyn Everson announced on her Facebook account Dec. 10 her intention to resign at the end of the year.

“I wanted to share some professional news. My time at Instacart will be coming to a close at the end of the year,” Everson wrote. “[CEO] Fidji [Simo] and I have been friends for over 10 years and our relationship is grounded in respect and trust, and we both agreed that this was the best decision for the company and for me personally.

“Although my time was short, I saw first hand what happens when an exceptional team is pulled together with an ambitious vision, and I cannot wait to watch and cheer on the journey and success of the team. Fidji and the team will always have a huge fan in me.”

Everson wrote that as she turns 50 in the next week, she plans to celebrate with her family and “reflect on how incredibly blessed I am to have them and so many wonderful people in my life.”

She wrote that her birthday present to herself is a “real break” as she decides what is next for her.

“I know our time is short on this Earth, and I know I want to keep making a difference and keep focusing on enlightened leadership and the importance of building strong cultures for people to thrive personally and professionally,” she wrote.

Everson began her role as president of Instacart on Sept. 7. She has a 30-year proven track record of leading at-scale, global consumer technology teams with a focus on growing global partnerships, industry-leading business development and pioneering advertising platforms.

Prior to joining Instacart, she most recently was VP of global marketing solutions at Facebook. Prior to Facebook, she was the corporate VP of Microsoft’s global advertising sales and trade marketing teams.

In a statement to CNBC, Simo said Everson’s departure is the “right decision for both the company and Carolyn based on our priorities and the role she was looking for at this point in her career. She’ll be staying on with us through the end of the year and leaves as a friend to the company.”

Instacart has partnered with more than 600 national, regional and local retailers, including unique brand names, to deliver from nearly 55,000 stores across more than 5,500 cities in North America. Instacart’s platform is available to more than 85 percent of U.S. households and 80 percent of Canadian households.
