I want to share an update about the WMF’s product leadership. As of today,
Wes Moran has stepped into the role of Vice President of Product. In this
role, he’ll oversee the Foundation’s product across all audience verticals,
reporting to me. Please join me in welcoming Wes into this new role.
Wes has more than 17 years of experience in product design and development,
with expertise in open source communities, user-centered design,
interaction design, user experience, user research and testing, product
management, and more. Since joining the Foundation, he led the
newly-created Discovery team to focus on user needs, transparency, and
accountability, and worked closely with our colleagues at Wikimedia
Deutschland on key projects such as Wikidata. He has been an invaluable
resource as we have continued to recruit for a Chief Technology Officer,
working with Terry and myself to cover critical leadership
With this change, Tomasz Finc, Katie Horn, Toby Negrin, and Trevor Parscal
will report to Wes. Tomasz will now lead the Discovery team. Tomasz has
been Director of Discovery and helped build and lead development of this
new team. He has served in many leadership capacities over his 7 years here
at the foundation and joined us from Amazon where he worked with the A9
search team. Please join me in congratulating Wes and Tomasz.
