Dear all,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, it's my 
pleasure today to announce the appointment of Stuart West as our new 
Board Treasurer. Stuart brings a wonderful mix of professional 
experience and capacity to the Foundation, and will help us in our 
continuing efforts to improve the Foundation's overall financial 
accountability and sustainability.

A bit of background about our new Board Treasurer:

Stuart has over 15 years of financial experience, including senior 
executive roles at publicly-traded companies including Yahoo! Inc., TiVo 
Inc., and in investment banking at J.P. Morgan & Co. He also worked with 
the United States Mission to the United Nations. Stuart's educational 
background includes a B.A. in History from Yale University, where he 
focused on 20th century diplomacy, and the Executive Program for Growing 
Companies at the Stanford Business School.  He is a dual citizen of the 
United States and the United Kingdom.

Stuart is a great believer in the Foundation's mission, and in the time 
the Board has spent with him so far we have been impressed by his broad 
awareness of the projects and their impact around the world.  He will be 
a great addition to the Board, and a tremendous resource for the Foundation.

Please join me in welcoming Stuart to our community!

Florence Devouard
Chair Wikimedia Foundation
