Agrawal has started a major reorganization of Twitter, putting his mark on the company. Dantley Davis, the chief design officer, Michael Montano, the head of engineering, and two executives will be leaving the company by year’s end as it is shown in a regulatory filing by Twitter.
Agrawal has shared that he is focusing on clear decision-making, more accountability, and faster execution. He is making some organizational and leadership changes to best position Twitter to achieve his goals. He has said that they’ve all had a discussion about the vital need for more operational diligence and believe that it has to start from the top.
Three more executives are given new titles of general manager, previously known as ‘vice president’. Kayvon Beykpour, the top consumer product executive, will become general manager for consumer products. Bruce Falck will be general manager for revenue products. And Nick Caldwell will become general manager for core tech, essentially filling in Agrawal’s former role; which was known as chief technology officer.
Jennifer Christie, Twitter’s head of people, is also leaving the company at the end of the year, but it has been said to be completely unrelated to the restructuring and is something that was announced internally a while ago. She will be replaced by the Vice President of people experience and head of inclusion and diversity, Dalana Brand.
