The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of George Neville-Neil to its board of directors.
George has been dabbling in the BSD world since his undergraduate days in the mid-1980s. He was granted his commit bit in 2004, and has served two terms on the FreeBSD Core team between 2006 and 2010.
In 2011, he started organizing the semi-annual FreeBSD Vendor Summits that gather commercial customers of FreeBSD along with project members in order to facilitate the movement of technologies between the Project and its customers.
George co-authored “The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System.” His technical contributions are mostly within the FreeBSD network stack with occasional forays into other parts of the system.
“The Foundation is at a pivotal point in our growth as a company,” said Deb Goodkin, Secretary/Treasurer, The FreeBSD Foundation. “We believe with George’s previous and current involvement in FreeBSD, that he will be a significant contributor in helping us achieve our ambitious goals this year.”
