Congrats Katherine (and commiserations to what free time you still had) thank you for being willing to take up this role, I think you're exactly what we need.I'd also like to thank all the c-levels who I know have spent countless hours over the past week or so talking about the next steps both for this position and for the foundation as a whole. I'm glad that we have a smart group of people helping to lead the org as we work to move forward.
