Jay is a candidate in the 2015 Board Election .


Q

What is your relationship to OpenStack, and why is its success important to you? What would you say is your biggest contribution to OpenStack's success to date?

A

My relationship is as a delegate for VCE. My biggest contribution is tracking and promoting awareness internal to VCE.

Q

Describe your experience with other non profits or serving as a board member. How does your experience prepare you for the role of a board member?

A

I have contributed both time and monetarily to non profits and community driven endeavors and those disclosures are represented in the disclosure portion of my blog. My experience as a board member has been limited to customer advisory boards and technical advisory boards of commercial entities and those disclosures are also represented in the disclosure portion of my blog. I view the OpenStack Board of Directors as an opportunity to contribute my time and energies for the benefit of the OpenStack community.

Q

What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?

A

The OpenStack Board of Directors role in the success of OpenStack should center upon organizational concerns to identify, support, and provide succession planning for the core leadership team (the Office) for the OpenStack community. While any Board of Directors role discussion would include governance, for the sake of brevity, the Board's role is to put the interests of the OpenStack community above their own.

Q

What do you think the top priority of the Board should be in 2014?

A

The top priority of the OpenStack Board of Directors should be establishing the core leadership team (the Office) for OpenStack and set timelines and appropriate bylaws to support and ensure sustainable succession planning.
