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.

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.
