Me causa boa impressão, ainda mais para quem tem queda pelo leste europeu,

Ela é comunista? #brincadeirinha

> Subject: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Please welcome Lila
> Tretikov, the Wikimedia Foundation's new ED
> To:
> Dear fellow community members,
> On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees I am delighted to
> announce that the new Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation will
> be Lila Tretikov. Lila is a widely respected Bay Area technology leader,
> most recently with SugarCRM.
> As many of you know, about a year ago Sue Gardner announced she planned to
> step down as our ED. As we launched the search for her successor, we spent
> some time working through the most critical requirements for the role. We
> decided the new ED should be someone with a product/engineering background,
> ideally in an open-source or other online community context. We wanted
> someone experienced with organisations that were growing, who'd managed
> staff and budgets comparable to ours, and who had experience creating
> continuous delivery of technology improvements in an agile context. We
> wanted a person who is oriented towards collaboration, transparency and
> openness, with some experience with complex stakeholder environments, and
> with an international orientation. We knew we needed someone with courage
> and strong personal integrity, who wouldn't be intimidated by attempts to
> censor the projects.
> Lila is precisely what we set out to find.
> Lila was born in the Soviet Union and moved to the United States alone, as
> a teenager. She's been working for technology companies, primarily in open
> source, in the Bay Area for the past 15 years. In 1999 she started her
> career at Sun Microsystems. Shortly afterwards she founded GrokDigital, a
> technology and design company. She spent three years as senior director of
> development at Telespree, a company that provides cloud-based wireless data
> services for mobile carriers. For the past eight years, she was at
> SugarCRM, where she held positions of increasing responsibility as the
> organization grew, including being in charge of internal IT, marketing,
> customer support and professional services, engineering, and product
> development. She has a stellar reputation as a leader who is highly
> skilled, collaborative, open, passionate and curious.
> We think Lila will be a terrific fit for the ED role. The Transition Team
> (Phoebe, Alice, Kat, Sue, Erik, Geoff, Gayle and I) voted unanimously to
> recommend her to the Board, and the Board voted unanimously to accept the
> recommendation. She strikes all of us as smart, brave and unpretentious,
> and we believe she has the skills the WMF needs.
> Lila is going to spend the next few weeks in learning-and-listening mode,
> and will take over the ED position from Sue at the end of the month. Her
> first priority will be to immerse herself in deepening her understanding of
> the Wikimedia projects.
> I want to close this announcement by saying a heartfelt and deeply
> appreciative thanks to Sue, who has been the Executive Director of the
> Wikimedia Foundation for the past seven years. When the Board and I hired
> Sue in 2007, we were just a chaotic little non-profit in small-town
> Florida, with a tiny staff and not much money. Over the past seven years,
> Sue's leadership has built the Foundation into an effective, well-funded
> and well-managed organisation, with integrity and a clear sense of purpose,
> and her steady and committed presence throughout the search process was
> integral in helping us come to this excellent result. We will be forever
> grateful for her leadership and vision, and I hope we can continue to rely
> on her support in the months and years ahead.
> In June Sue will move into a new role as a special advisor to me and Lila.
> She'll also take a well-earned holiday, and maybe even a bit of a
> wiki-break, before beginning to think about what she's going to do next.
> Many of us will get a chance to see her in London, at Wikimania, in August.
> The Wikimedia Foundation is delighted to have reached such a successful
> outcome to the search. My thanks to Lisa Grossman of m/Oppenheim for
> helping us with it, and I ask you to please join me in extending a warm
> welcome to Lila Tretikov, our new ED.
