Matt Mullenweg and Toni Schneider are switching jobs at Automattic. After joining Automattic eight years ago, Toni Schneider is moving into a product-focused role within Automattic, and Matt Mullenweg is the new CEO.
First off, super excited to work under Matt’s leadership. As many have said, though it won’t amount to a huge change organizationally or managerially, it’s a great thing to see nonetheless. Automattic was founded by Matt 8 years ago, and it’s awesome to finally see him take the reins as CEO. There will undoubtedly be some awesome things coming from Automattic in 2014, and with Matt and Toni’s help, hopefully for many more years to come.
