Dear OSGeo community,

It is my pleasure to nominate Nicolas Bozon (nicolas.bozon at gmail.com)
for the OSGeo Board of Directors 2016 elections.

Nicolas is an avid OSGeo advocate from France, with a global approach
of open source and open collaboration. He's been using and promoting
FOSS4G technologies since 2006; he is a Charter Member since 2011 and
a Marketing Committee member since 2012.

He co-founded the ZOO-Project, the Open WPS platform, and is part of
its PSC and contributors since 2009. He is also a regular attendee of
global and regional FOSS4G events since 2008, for which he is often
helping on organization and marketing.

Nicolas is a geospatial expert and designer, with complementary
research, development and business experiences. He is also maintaining
a vast network of users, developers and researchers within OSGeo and
also beyond in a broader geospatial community.

Active at project, chapter, conference and committee levels, Nicolas
is strongly committed to open source and has inspiring vision for the
Foundation. He also has a deep understanding of the evolution of OSGeo
into a global volunteer organization and a clear roadmap to further
strengthen our Foundation.

Nicolas has a keen interest in geospatial innovation which he manages
to also leverage for community related issues. His deep insight into
media design, branding and marketing will greatly help OSGeo to grow
as a top class volunteer geospatial organization.

Given his wealth of experience, his international profile and
excellent communication skills, I believe Nicolas would be a great
addition to the OSGeo board.

Best regards,
