Changing of the Guard: Shuni Retires, Titan and Others Promoted

The end of July saw a transition of command that has brought little in the way of operational changes to the FSF but big change in the way of public leadership. Admiral Jonathan Shuni, who originally created the FSF and has been it’s commanding officer for 20 years, announced his retirement from the position. He will stay on in an administrative role, taking care of technical aspects of the FSF and the Simming.Net server.

FSF Titan, who has been the FSF’s Executive Officer, has been promoted to the Commanding Officer administrative position. FSF Falk has moved up from Chief of Operations to Titan’s former position, and FSF Who has been voted in as the new Chief of Operations.

While this bodes a somewhat fundamental shift in the FSF administrative members, day-to-day operations will not change. Already, FSF Titan had been taking care of administrative duties comparable with his new position, and FSF Falk had been gaining oversight experience of the directors which will assist him in his duties now overseeing Fleet Command and assisting as FSF Executive Officer.

Despite the changes to the names at the top of the command chain, Admiral Shuni will still remain in an administrative position. The FSF founder and 20 year long leader will remain in charge of the website and technical aspects of FSF operations. He will continue to have a say in the direction of the FSF and will work along with the rest of the administrative team, who will all collectively continue to take the lead in moving the FSF forward.
