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.
