The way we’d get there:
I’m prepared to resign from my engineering management responsibilities
and to focus solely on my remaining role as VP of Product, as soon as
a successor for VP of Engineering has been identified. We would start
that hiring process probably in early 2013. I’m recommending to Sue
that we seriously consider internal candidates for the VP of
Engineering role, as we have a strong engineering management team in
So realistically we'd probably identify that person towards the end of
the fiscal year.
Due to the nature of the foundation and to ensure continued growth and
prosperity I would be hoping that the foundation ensured both
positions became "vacant" and the person/s are chosen on the merits of
their applications to ensure the continued and best growth.
