As just announced, the Wikimedia Foundation does not have any executive director any more, until an ED is found (hopefully within 3-4 months). This raises some questions of organisation.
To foster efficiency and channel communications, the board has agreed that the following staff members or contractants shall be reporting to the following people. 

For all office/administrative issues, staff (Barbara, Danny...) will report to Carolyn
Carolyn (operations) will report to Florence
Sandy (communication) will report to Florence
Brad (legal) will report to Florence
Danny (non administrative tasks, eg grants, special projects etc...) will report to Erik
Brion/Mark/Tim (tech) will report to Jan-Bart
Delphine (chapters) will report to Oscar

Due to their background, Oscar and Michael (are and) will be very involved in financial and audit considerations.
Jimbo is more focused on public relations and licenses discussions.
Kat is spending time on various legal-related, licenses discussions and is in charge of an assignment not yet made public :-) (ahah! cabal!)
