Nick Denton has announced some major changes to the leadership structure at Gawker Media.
Instead of Denton having all the oversight, a collective of seven managing partners (including Denton) “will consult on major matters such as tech investments and the reassignment of department heads,” according to a memo.
The partners include the following:
- Tommy Craggs, executive editor
- Heather Dietrick, president
- Andrew Gorenstein, president of Gawker advertising
- Scott Kidder, COO
- Erin Pettigrew, chief strategy officer
- Tom Plunkett, CTO
- Denton, CEO
If you’re in the mood to read Denton’s extremely long note about these changes, it’s below. After you’re finished, maybe try to get out more?
