Actually, not so much a personel org chart, but rather a general
description what the function titles mean (ED, Director, Manager, Chief,
Head etc.), which supposedly should be much more stable and therefore
easier to grasp? For someone not embedded in US company nomenclature this
is all quite confusing and the general description articles on enwiki are
not very helpful either...

In Wikimedian spirit, i would like to take the
opportunity to ask the
silly question: is the structure of what all titles in Wikimedia mean,
described somewhere? Because to be honest, I'm getting all confused about
who ranks what in the structure of directors, vice presidents, chiefs,
heads, managers and seniors. I was, silly me, always under the impression
that a Vice President was basically just below the ED - on the C-level.
I was looking for this info to be perhaps linked from the staff &
contractors page on wmfwiki, but i don't seem to be able to find it. Could
someone enlighten, and perhaps add it somewhere if not there yet? I recall
having asked this question also a few years back and that a list was made,
but I can't find it any longer...
I think you're talking about an org chart here. The Wikimedia Foundation
used to have one, but they're kind of annoying to maintain and any public
version basically fell apart years ago. Last I saw, it was a tool on Labs,
but it's been through several iterations. The page histories (of the
article and the template) on wikimediafoundation.org
will have references
to it if you go back a few years.
The template page includes a table of contents, which is not yet updated
to reflect this new department, but is still really helpful for
understanding the organization's structure nonetheless. Bonus: that page
also auto-expands the sections for faster and easier searching. Viewing
the template page instead of the article is a nice little hack for now.
