Announcing the Unannounced

For a couple of months my boss has been working with the next high-guy to make a split in our division.  He had to choose which side of the split he was going to sit on.  I didn't have to decide; I just decided to stay with him.  I had my hopes, however.  Anyway, everything has to be approved by the Top Guys, and that just happened on Wednesday.  My boss was leaving the country for a week and a half, so he decided to let it go, and everything could be announced to the division when he returns.

Except the managing director of one department got a bug in his bonnet to get the whole thing moving.  So today they started tearing out walls and core drilling and pulling cables to create a new office on our floor.  It was noisy.  It was not discreet.  It was messy.  It interrupted conversations and phone calls and meetings.  And most people had no idea what was happening.

So here's my official piece of the unofficial announcement:  Dean and I will be moving to the SPD.  I don't know when.  I don't know who is going with us (about half of our division will go).  We will move to the 10th floor, and HQF will move back to the 11th floor.  There will be a new MFD controller.  I don't know who that will be.

And now you know it all.  Unofficially, of course.
