Wikimedia Foundation Executive Director Transition Team/2013/Short Update 10th of March

As mentioned before we have taken a different tactic in finding new candidates and we have met with several people and we have had several meetings with candidates with two or more members of the Transition Team.

We are at a point where we have three candidates that we all feel are great. We hope to speak to them in the coming week or two and hope to go into the final process (reference checking, terms negotiation etc.) after that. We would then likely be looking to announce the new ED in May.

Sue touched upon this subject during the Metrics update which took place on March 6th. (recorded; although the whole meeting is interesting the ED Search update is from the 31st minute onwards)
