At our last board meeting (2019-12-30) the new elected OSGeo Board appointed the Executive Positions for OSGeo. We had a very productive discussion and appointed the positions with full consensus.

The OSGeo Board is pleased to announce the following executive positions:


  • President: Angelos Tzotsos
  • Vice-President: Vicky Vergara
  • Vice-President: Helena Mitasova
  • Vice-President: Victoria Rautenbach
  • Vice-President: Codrina Maria Ilie
  • Treasurer: Michael Smith
  • Secretary: Astrid Emde


  • Chair: Till Adams

We are pleased to welcome the new OSGeo President Angelos Tzotsos. Angelos is well known in the community and active in many projects. He is part of the OSGeo Board since 2016 and he served as OSGeo Vice-President since 2018. His leadership will be an asset going forward with OSGeo.

We decided to accompany the OSGeo President with four Vice-Presidents to share all the commitments an OSGeo President has to satisfy and represent OSGeo at events all over the world; we therefore also welcome Helena Mitasova, Vicky Vergara, Victoria Rautenbach and Codrina Maria Ilie as Vice-Presidents of OSGeo.

The Board would like to thank Michael Smith for again volunteering for the role of OSGeo treasurer for another year and continuing to help OSGeo with financial matters.

The Board would also like to thank Astrid Emde for again volunteering for the role of OSGeo Secretary.

Till Adams volunteered to act as Chair of the Board. This is a non-executive position helping the board follow up on decisions, schedule meetings and keeping the board on track.

Please read the OSGeo bylaws to find out more about the Executive Positions.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank the past members of the OSGeo Board who all have contributed their time and efforts to help build up this amazing community.
