Exciting things are afoot at Enthought. We’ve recently made some changes to our leadership structure to accommodate our current and anticipated growth. While these changes will probably not be too noticeable to the open source community, we thought it would be good to use this forum to keep people up to date and to congratulate our folks on their new roles.
The leadership team at Enthought now consists of the following exceptional individuals (and me):
Eric Jones will be taking over the role of CEO and will continue to direct the vision of the company.
Travis Oliphant is our new President–directing the day to day operations of the company. In addition to his operational duties, Travis will continue to be our primary liaison to the open source community, and will head our internal and external training efforts.
I (Travis Vaught) will take on the CFO/Chief of Marketing position in order to optimize our fiscal strategy and formally focus on expanding Enthought’s marketing efforts.
Dave Peterson will continue in his role as the Director of Software Engineering–managing our service work, software process and infrastructure. Additionally, Dave will be the Product Manager for the Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) which will be released soon.
Peter Wang is our new Director of Technical Architecture. Peter is expanding on his role as the Architect of the Kiva/Enable/Chaco stack to include the whole of our application frameworks–Traits, Envisage, etc.
We’re excited about these changes and we’re looking forward to the great things we’ll accomplish with this team serving our employees and the open source community.
