I agree with this completely. The Foundation could save so much money and time if the Board would simply appoint Katherine and bypass the planned search in recognition of Katherine's observed performance working at the WMF which no external candidate can possibly match, please? Can we at least get confirmation that her performance working at the Foundation will be appropriately weighted in her favor if we do have another lengthy, expensive, third-party search?
