[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees appointments and officer positions 2018

Christophe Henner-3
*Hello everyone,I am happy to make some announcements about the Wikimedia
Foundation Board of Trustees. As of today, Tanya Capuano has formally
joined the Board. Tanya is an experienced financial professional who has
worked as a Vice President of Finance for Intuit, and more recently as CFO
for the software firm G5. She is passionate about education, having served
on the boards of various educational nonprofits.Tanya will enrich the
financial and accounting skills critical to the oversight of the Foundation
and to her role as Chair of the Foundation’s Audit Committee, to which she
was also elected today. Please join me in warming welcoming her in the
Wikimedia movement. As Tanya joins us, we also see Kelly Battles and Alice
Wiegand, two very valuable trustees, leave us as their terms of service
come to a close. Both of them have been stellar trustees who helped the
board and the Foundation grow and become a more robust organisation.Kelly
and Alice, you have brought so much to the Foundation and to the movement,
and it has been an immense pleasure serving with you. I can only hope, as
has often been the case with other former trustees, our movement will be
lucky enough we keep seeing both of you around and that you keep on
bringing your experience, skills, and wisdom to all of us. As you might
have noticed we still are one trustee short, with a total of nine. We are
currently searching for a tenth Trustee, with a technology and platform
background; you can read the profile here on Commons
<https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/Board_Recruiting_Candidate_Packet_May_2018.pdf>.
Today the Board also voted to appoint María Sefidari as Chair and
Christophe Henner as Vice Chair. After serving as Chair for two terms, I
decided to step down and support María as Chair, hopefully as effectively
as she served me and the organization when she was my Vice Chair. María and
I both have a long history of involvement in the Wikimedia community, and
prior to coming to the Foundation, held leadership roles in local Wikimedia
organizations.In addition, the Board re-elected Nataliia Tymkiv as Chair of
the Board Governance Committee, supported by BGC members James Heilman and
Dariusz Jemielniak, and alternates Raju Narisetti and María. We also
elected Raju as Chair of the Human Resources Committee, with members María
and Dariusz.  Finally, as noted, we elected Tanya Capuano as Chair of the
Audit Committee, with Christophe and Raju as members and María and Jimmy as
alternates.  More about Christophe, María, and the Committee Chairs are
below. I hope you will join me in congratulating them on their new
positions and wish them success in their terms ahead.On a more personal
note, I would like to thank everyone for the last two years. This is not
farewell, but the last two years have been a roller coaster and I am proud
I had the chance to serve as Chair and helped us building up the future of
the movement. We have achieved a lot in the last 24 months, and the best is
yet to come!ChristopheAbout Tanya CapuanoTanya Pine Capuano most recently
was the chief financial officer (CFO) of the data-driven marketing company
G5 in Bend, Oregon. Originally from San Jose, California, she has
wide-ranging experience including strategy and financial planning and
analysis in technology. In addition to her recent role at G5, she has also
worked for Hewlett-Packard and Intuit.She has also supported numerous
education initiatives throughout her career; including serving on the
boards of Education Pioneers, Los Altos Educational Foundation, and “I Have
a Dream” Foundation San Francisco, an organization whose San Francisco
chapter she co-founded.She is very involved with Stanford University alumni
life, having earned a bachelor's in economics, a master's in education, and
a master of business administration from the university. After graduating,
