Turned out there was a slight misunderstanding between the company and me. They meant to appoint me to the board. I’ve withdrawn the resignation and accepted the position: CLO, Chief Legal Officer. In the C-suite, at last. In a tech company. Another one down, ladies, or should I say up.
I called my friend to break the news. And before she could say so much as Not you again! (and possibly worse), I told her that I’m on the Board now. “Well played!“, she said.
She’s a tough cookie, my friend on Union Square. But I hadn’t been playing anything or anyone. I had rather passed through the eye of a needle.
