- New Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal ended his first week at the helm of the company by changing the management structure to product and engineering.
- Former head of product Kyvan Becpour will become general manager of consumer, and Bruce Falk, head of revenue product, will become general manager of revenue. Vice President of Engineering Nick Caldwell will assume the role of General Manager of Core Tech.
- Twitter also said that Michael Montano, head of engineering and Dantley Davis, head of design and research, will step down from their positions at the end of the year.
Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal, who replaced co-founder Jack Dorsey on Monday, is rapidly reorganizing the company’s leadership structure in product and engineering.
twitter said regulatory filing On Friday that “to drive increased accountability, speed and operational efficiency,” the company is establishing general manager positions, and those executives will “lead all core teams in engineering, product management, design and research.”
Former head of product Kyvan Becpour will become general manager of Twitter’s consumer. Head of Revenue Product Bruce Falk will become General Manager of Revenue, and Nick Caldwell, Vice President of Engineering, will assume the role of Core Tech’s General Manager.
Twitter said senior director of strategy and operations Lindsey Iannucci was also promoted to chief of staff and vice president of operations to support Agarwal.
In the past, Twitter has been criticized for moving too slowly, said Laura Yagerman, the company’s new head of corporate communications.
“We want to be able to move fast and make decisions, and Parag is moving forward with that,” Yagerman said.
Dorsey announced his departure on Monday and said in a letter to employees that, “I believe the company is ready to move on from its founders.” Agarwal, 37, has now been tasked with meeting Twitter’s aggressive internal goals, with the company saying earlier this year that it aims to have 315 million monetized daily active users by the end of 2023 and increase its annual revenue by the same year. At least double that.
As part of the restructuring, Twitter announced that its Head of Engineering Michael Montano and Head of Design and Research Dantley Davis will step down from their positions at the end of the year and remain as consultants until the first quarter of 2022.
Davis came under criticism for his leadership style New York Times report in August. Yagerman said the report had no effect on the reorganization. She said there “wasn’t room” for Davis and Montano “on the basis of the reorganization”.
