I would like to nominate Vincent Picavet as a Charter Member of OSGeo.

I know Vincent personally as QGIS and PostGIS enthusiast and developer,
and I share his ideas about OSGeo and it's environment, which I had the
chance to know a little bit during our chats at both FOSS4G-CEE events
(his idea it was, to rename it to FOSS4G-NSCNEE for
Not-So-Central-Neither-Eastern-Europe, which I like).

Vincent was always involved in open source world, particulary in the GIS
field. He is a founding member of Francophone OSGeo local chapter and
its current treasurer. He has initiated the first FOSS4G event in France
(FROG2013) and organized other FOSS4G-related events in France (QGIS day
2011, PostGIS session 2011...)

Vincent talked at a lot of international and local conferences on
various FOSS4G subjects (among others about QGIS) and especially spatial
databases (PostGIS).

Vincent founded Oslandia in 2009 with Olivier Courtin, providing
services around FOSS4G and focusing on quality and innovation for
opensource GIS.
