I also second the nomination of Marc! I know Marc for almost ten years now and
he has always been pushing open source geospatial software with great
enthusiasm and energy. Especially in The Netherlands, but in the last years
also more and more at an international level. It is great to see him stand for
election to the osgeo board now and I'm convinced he'll bring lots of new ideas
and energy with him. With his business and marketing background he could well
be the person to give open source geospatial software an extra boost as a solid
commercial alternative to proprietary software.

>> I would like to nominate Marc Vloemans for the Board of Directors of the
>> OSGeo.org foundation.
>> I know Marc now for approximately 10 years. The first years simply as
>> fellow-Dutchmen working in spatial IT in The Netherlands. But since Marc
>> joined the Board of Directors of the Dutch Local Chapter "OSgeo.nl" in 2015,
>> and since we both were members of the Local Organizing Committee of FOSS4G
>> in Bonn this year, I have worked with Marc more closely than ever before.
>> I guess a lot of you (the participants of FOSS4G) can't have missed Marc
>> since he was the central person in manning the OSGeo.org booth at FOSS4G.
>> He has a broad management experience in "spreading the open source word" in
>> both commercial and public organizations, not just in Europe but also in
>> other continents. But his organizational experience is not tied to just our
>> well-known FOSS4G ecosystem.
>> Therefore I think Marc can build bridges to other organisations and
>> ecosystems, and thus bring OSgeo.org a step further in its maturity.
>> And besides that, I know Marc as someone you can have a good beer/talk &
>> laugh with!
>> Kind regards,
