I’m excited to share that I am stepping into a new role with Mozilla as manager of the Release Management team. Below is an e-mail that my friend and manager Sheila Mooney sent to Mozilla employees last week announcing this change.
Date: Fri, 28 Feb 2014 11:19:07 -0800 (PST) From: Sheila Mooney To: team Mozilla Subject: Changes in Release Management All, I am happy to share some changes I am making to my team. Effective immediately, Lawrence Mandel will be moving into the role of Manager of the Release Management team. With the Release Managers in tight collaboration with the Project/Program Managers, we can think beyond just keeping the trains running on time and tighten our focus on quality, metrics and process to ensure we are shipping the best possible products to our users. Lawrence's experience inside and outside Mozilla aligns closely with these goals and I am very excited to see what he does with this role! Lawrence will be transitioning many of his current project management responsibilities to others in my team in order to focus fully on this new challenge. The Web Compatibility Engineers will continue to report to him and Chris Peterson will report to me directly. Please join me in congratulating Lawrence on his new opportunity! Cheers, Sheila
