Brand Designer Hiring: Who Should They Report To? Insights for Scaling Your Design Team

I’m hiring a Brand Designer. Do you think this person should report to me or to the Sr. PMM?

Pros for it reporting to me:
– Gives the Sr. PMM more time to be executing herself
– Easier setup to scale Design for more senior growth in the future

Pros for it reporting to Sr. PMM:
– She gets opportunities to grow in people mgmt more
– I get more time b/c I’m managing one less person.

Todd Barr or others, thoughts?
