OWASP Creates Executive Director Position

OWASP is driven by volunteers and the contributions of thousands all over the world. Behind the scenes there is also a group of dedicated paid staff that focus on critical operations to ensure the OWASP engine keeps running strong. This team has grown organically over the years as OWASP has recognized the need for dedicated full time individuals to focus on specific task items. In each of these areas we've seen great successes from our staff.

As OWASP continues to grow we must also ensure our structure and supporting operations team grows too. The next step in that growth is the creation of the OWASP Executive Director role. The individual in this role will lead the focus and resourcing of our operations team to ensure we execute on our strategic goals each year. This individual will ultimately be responsible for leading the operations team to success and will report directly to the OWASP board. This role will maximize the value our operations team provides to our community, projects and the world. 

This is an exciting step forward for OWASP and a demonstration of the continued growth of our community.

As mentioned on http://blog.diniscruz.com/2013/04/owasp-executive-director-role-not-yet.html I think OWASP should hire a couple more employees first
