Twitter Changes Leadership Structure As New CEO Emerges

Twitter after replacing its co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey has started reshuffling its leadership structure across product and engineering. The new Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal assumed office on Monday, 29th December 2021.

The company in a regulatory filing on Friday stated that there will be some changes in its leadership structure and this is to drive increased accountability, speed, and operational efficiency. It was also stated in the filing that it is establishing general manager positions, and those executives “will lead all core teams across engineering, product management, design, and research.”

Kayvon Beykpour, the former head of product, will become Twitter’s general manager of consumers. Revenue product lead Bruce Falk will become general manager of revenue, and vice president of engineering Nick Caldwell will assume the role of general manager of core tech.

The new Twitter CEO started work by changing the management structure in product and engineering.

According to Twitter, Lindsey Iannucci, senior director of strategy and operations, was also elevated to chief of staff and vice president of operations to support Agrawal.

Also as part of the restructure, Twitter announced that engineering lead 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 advisors through the first quarter of 2022.

Jack Dorsey announced his departure on Monday and told employees in a letter, “I believe the company is ready to move on from its founders.” Agrawal, 37, is now tasked with meeting Twitter’s aggressive internal goals after the company said earlier this year it aims to have 315 million monetizable daily active users by the end of 2023 and to at least double its annual revenue by that same year.
