The non-profit organization behind Wikipedia is now looking for a new Executive Director to lead Wikimedia Foundation through the next phase of innovation and growth.
According to the announcement, Wikimedia Foundation’s Executive Director Sue Gardner has decided to step back, so they are now in need of someone to take her place.
"We're really going to miss her, but I'm happy to say she'll be staying on until we find her successor, and we're now ready to kick off an international search to find that person," the message said.
The person who will occupy this position will provide leadership and strategy for the Foundation and will manage day-to-day operations and activities.
Modernizing the user experience and nurturing, growing and diversifying the community of people who write the projects is also on the list of responsibilities.
