Twitter's new CEO announces major reorganization of the social networking company.
Twitter's new CEO, Parag Agrawal, announced a major reorganization of the company Friday, putting his stamp on the organization following the sudden departure of co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey earlier this week.
The shake-up, meant to streamline the company's operations and accelerate its growth, will bring together employees previously divided by job function - such as engineering, design, and product development - on teams organized by what they're working on, such as consumer product, revenue, and core tech. Two executives, head of engineering Michael Montano and chief design officer Dantley Davis, will step down as part of the reshuffling and leave the company by year's end, as will the company's head of people, Jennifer Christie.
In a companywide email obtained by The Washington Post, Agrawal said that he will focus on "clear decision-making, increased accountability, and faster execution," and said he was "making a number of organizational and leadership changes to best position us to achieve our goals. . . . We've all discussed the critical need for more operational rigor and it must start from the top."..
