The new appointed Twitter CEO, Parag Agrawal is set to begin a major reorganization of the company. Agrawal who joined the company as an engineer in 2011 has announced its major reorganization of the Twitter yesterday.
So far, two executives have stepped down as part of this restructuring: Twitter’s Chief Design Officer Dantley Davis, who joined the company in 2019, and Head of Engineering Michael Montano, who joined in 2011.
In August, The New York Times reported on Davis’ “tough love” policy in the workplace, which company officials said may have gone too far at times. This behavior seemed contrary to Twitter’s #LoveWhereYou Work and #OneTeam slogans, which emphasize “creating a culture that’s supportive, respectful, and a pretty cool vibe.”
“Dantley’s departure is singularly focused around shifting our organizational model around a structure that has one lead manager supporting a key company objective,” a Twitter spokesperson told our Correspondent . “We don’t have further details to share on these changes out of respect for the individuals involved.”
“Parag is focused on operational excellence and setting Twitter up to hit its goals; these changes were made with that in mind. For our teams working within the product and technology organizations, we’re moving to a General Manager model and having one person lead work that supports one of our key company objectives. This will allow us to operate more cross-functionally and enable faster, more informed decision-making,” the Twitter spokesperson added.
