I would like to nominate Jakob Miksch [1].

I asked him and he agrreed with the nomination.

Jakobs background is in Geography and Geoinformatics. He is interested 
in geospatial application development using open source tools. He mostly 
works with QGIS and PostGIS and likes programming.
Jakob is involved in FOSSGIS, OSGeo events & OpenStreetMap meet-ups 
since a few years. He was visitor, volunteer & speaker at some conferences.
He is involved in the OSM project and OSGeo-Live.

Recently he gave a talk at FOSS4G Norway about the SDI he is involed in 
- so maybe some of you know him from the talk.

He is curious and open minded and can be a bridge to students and the 
OSM community.

Would be great to have him in the team as OSGeo Charter Member.
