We were not seeking candidates for this role. We (unanimously)
promoted Sarah to Executive Director. Because these board conversation
were about employee matters, we had those conversations in private.
It's the •only• private board discussion that I have seen in 2013
during my term. It's the primary role of the board to hire staff

As Executive Director, it's now Sarahs job to rearrange the staff as
she sees fit or hire someone new (if the budget allows).

So the answer is, we shall see!

Last note, I am very wary regarding "private board discussions". If
the board has private discussions that lead to seizing of new power,
that's a huge alarm. But the opposite happened here. We removed
operational leadership from the board and passed it to Sarah and the
staff. It's the boards job to keep watch over this, but I'm personally
really thrilled about this change in OWASP's organizational structure.
