Rod Fergusson to Lead Blizzard's Diablo Team

Rod Fergusson tweets that he's departing Gears of War studio The Coalition to join Blizzard where he will oversee the Diablo series:
Starting in March, I will join Blizzard to oversee the Diablo franchise. Leaving is bittersweet as I love our Gears family, the fans, and everyone at The Coalition and Xbox. Thank you, it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you all.

I began working on Gears of War over 15 years ago and since then, it has been the joy of my life. But now it’s time for a new adventure. I leave Gears in the great hands of The Coalition and can’t wait for everyone to play Gears Tactics on April 28.

How is his background relevant? Other than surviving as a top level suit in a successful franchise, what does he bring that will help Bliz/Act stop shooting itself in the foot and stop munging up the Diablo series?
Perhaps he has excellent managerial skills, to prevent exactly this? Making sure that this project WILL ship in more or less the intended time frame? Preventing aimless meandering, while core gameplay mechanics are constantly changed? Preventing the board or marketing from interfering with the project outside set boundaries (Oh, I've seen this feature in this successful game, you have to implement this)?
