I don't think it's really a matter of transparency and openness - they
announced the hire, just not the plan to hire, I don't have any great
problem with that. What seems unwise to me is that they appear to have
hired someone without interviewing anyone else for the position (at
least, I don't remember seeing an advert for the position). If they
didn't consider anyone else, then how do we know Erik is the best
person for the job?
