It is our pleasure to nominate Sanghee Shin
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/User:Sanghee), from South Korea, for the
OSGeo Board.  Most are aware of Sanghee as the passionate chair of the
upcoming FOSS4G-Seoul event (http://2015.foss4g.org/), but Sanghee has
been involved in Open Source geo for a long time.  Locally, he is the
founding member of the OSGeo Korean Chapter, which chapter actually
hosts a local FOSS4G-Korea event every year since 2011.  Sanghee is also
the C.E.O. and President of Gaia3D in Seoul (http://www.gaia3d.com/).

Sanghee (secretly) commutes often between the UK and Seoul, so he is
well aware of the global geospatial community.  His strong business
sense and his focus on Asia gives the Board an interesting perspective,
and a much needed perspective as our local chapters are so active there.
  Sanghee is very honoured to accept this nomination, so please welcome
him onto the OSGeo Board of Directors for 2015.

Venka Raghavan, Markus Neteler, & Jeff McKenna
