Cynthia Williams, who has been president of Wizards of the Coast for the last two years, will be leaving the company at the end of the month, according to an SEC filing dated April 15th. Hasbro is already looking for somebody to step into the role.

Williams worked for Microsoft on the Gaming Ecosystem Commercial Team before joining WotC two years ago, stepping into the role that then-president Chris Cocks vacated when he was promoted to CEO of Hasbro in February 2022.

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On April 15, 2024, Cynthia Williams, President of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro Gaming, informed the Company of her resignation from the Company effective April 26, 2024. The Company is conducting a process to identify her successor, looking at both internal and external candidates.

According to Rascal News, WotC responded with a comment: "We’re excited for Cynthia to take the next step in her career and grateful for the contributions she has made in her more than two years at Wizards and Hasbro. We wish her the absolute best in her next endeavor. We have started the search for our next President of Wizards of the Coast and hope to have a successor in place soon."

A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
Sorry for a slight derail. "Golden Dragon Anniversary Edition" - Is this a nickname or a product? I've neither seen it before or in a brief bit of googling found a matching reference.
No, a throw-away joke I made in another thread where people were arguing about "edition" language.

50th anniversary = golden anniversary

Throw "dragon" there, because D&D

So I just call it the Gold Dragon Anniversary Edition because I find that more fun than taking sides in arguments over the 2024 rules update nomenclature.
