+1 on this nomination. I've only had the pleasure of interacting with
Marc recently in Bonn, but I believe he is the exact kind of person we
need to take OSGeo to the next level with a clear, focused and well
executed marketing strategy.

> He has a broad management experience in "spreading the open source word" in

> Therefore I think Marc can build bridges to other organisations and
