His team got formed in July 2020 so people used to be in diff buildings and they re-org’ed since then. Immediate need is the solve the problem for people who’ve joined since Covid and don’t have seats. First need is to get everyone in the door, do a re-stack and move again. Role will require calendaring, some travel, celebrations, in-person meetings, etc. but space planning is a huge part of this role.
The Director’s current EA is based out of Georgia (not sure when she will be relocating yet) however the role would be responsible for supporting a Director out of India who will be relocating to Seattle so the role will include calendaring for him and also supporting and sharing responsibilities with the current EA as the scope of her role is so big as this team is global. Down the road, they will figure out which of the 2 EAs can better support (local Director of Product Assurance Risk & Security) and the other Director currently based out of India.
