Matt Mullenweg on being a CEO

n

From an interview with Matt Mullenweg who is now filling the role of CEO at Automattic – this is a profit-oriented company that just raised $160m:

“… Headcount stuff, budgeting, P & L’s, I just think those don’t really matter. In some ways I’m a non-traditional executive. But part of what we do, myself and Stu the CFO, is we worry about that so no one else in the company has to.

… The majority of the company isn’t focused on making money. It’s a very small percentage. The circle gets smaller and smaller.”
