Sandberg Seen Laying Groundwork for Role After Facebook: Tech

Sheryl Sandberg, fresh off a media tour to promote her book on women in the workplace, is building the foundation for a life in the public eye that supersedes her day-to-day duties as operating chief at Facebook Inc.

While Sandberg, 43, intends to stay put for now, she may later consider a role in politics; the U.S. Treasury Department, where she worked before; or as chief executive officer at another company, said people familiar with her thinking, who asked not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak on her behalf. Already, Sandberg is extending her influence beyond Facebook with the book “Lean In,” which has climbed to No. 1 on bestseller lists.
