A mim também. Não tenho outras referências dela, por isso não comentei nada
ao encaminhar. Mas acho que traz um lado mais técnico, que estavam
buscando, com experiência com comunidades também.

A ver.

>> Subject: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Please welcome Lila
>> Tretikov, the Wikimedia Foundation's new ED
>> To: wikimediaannounc...@lists.wikimedia.org
>> 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.
