This blog includes two statements. One from Dries Buytaert, as Drupal Project Lead, and another from Megan Sanicki, as the Executive Director of the Drupal Association and the Drupal Association Board.

We recognize that events and conversations earlier this year surfaced many concerns and needs within the community. One in particular is related to Larry Garfield’s role within Drupal.

Welcome to Piyush, and thanks to Srijan.

We are excited to share the news that we have a new addition to the Drupal Association team - thanks to Srijan.

Last year, we announced the reduction of our team size in order to make the Drupal Association more sustainable. In response, Srijan, a long time Drupal Association Supporter, hired Piyush Jain to work on marketing initiatives and has donated 100% of his time to the Drupal Association.

It’s an incredibly generous contribution and we are extremely grateful for Srijan’s support.
