MakerDAO does not have a management team. Instead, it consists of Core Units, functional teams that furthers the DAO’s objectives. Core Units are created through governance proposals that are voted on by $MKR holders and delegates. Each Core Unit has a specific mandate and is responsible for the day-to-day decision making within such mandate. Pre-defined powers through mandates mitigate the risk of adverse management decisions, both in terms of scope and magnitude.
However, it is worth noting that despite the decentralized structure of MakerDAO, Rune Christensen, the founder, is believed to control more than 50% of the voting power locked in the Maker Protocol, enough to sway any governance proposal.
