Upon assuming the office of Twitter CEO last week, Parag Agrawal began restructuring the organization in the hopes of improving operations across the board. Not only that, but the new CEO also announced that one of their controversial executives will depart the company, as well.
According to numerous media sources, Agrawal — who was formerly Twitter’s chief technology officer — is looking forward to reshaping the structure of Twitter’s leadership, transitioning to a more “general manager” model.
As a result, this model will see Brice Faick, Kayvon Beykpour, and Nick Caldwell leading revenue, consumer, and core technology departments, respectively.
In essence, these general managers will lead the company’s core teams, with Lindsey Ianucci also joining the team as vice president of operations and chief of staff.
As a part of the new Twitter rehaul and restructure, the former leader of the research and design department, Dantley Davis, will leave his post by the end of 2021. That said, Davis will stay with the company as an advisor until Q1 2022, to ensure that the shift goes smoothly.
As you may know, Davis’ leadership style has been criticized and scrutinized by the company.
This is why most experts agree that the new Twitter CEO wishes to make a statement by remodeling the entire management structure.
Last but not least, Jack Dorsey, former CEO and co-founder of Twitter, will remain on the director’s board until next year (2022) when his term will expire.
