I’m pleased to announce that Sophie Goossens, an attorney in London, has joined the board of directors of the MetaBrainz Foundation. Sophie specializes in intellectual property law and has ties to the European Commission, which makes her a great addition to our board of directors.
Welcome to our board of directors, Sophie!
Sophie replaces Carol Smith who decided to move on from the board after leaving her position as the head of Google’s Summer of Code program. Carol joined us in late 2009 and has held the position as treasurer & secretary since then. Two years after joining us, she became a full director in early 2011.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for MetaBrainz in the past 6+ years, Carol!
Last, but not least, we needed to fill the Secretary/Treasurer slots that were vacated by Carol. Luckily for us, our business development manager Christina Smith stepped up to those duties and was voted onto the board back in February. (Now that all of these changes are complete, we can publicly speak about them.)
Thank you for taking on these two positions, Christina. I’m also quite happy that we’ve preserved the balance of people with the last name Smith in our board. 🙂
Thanks Sophie, Carol and Christina!
