Hi everyone --
It is with great pleasure that I announce that at today's meeting of the Foundation's Board of Directors, the Board has appointed Kenneth Knowles as the second chair of the Apache Beam project.
Kenn has served on the PMC since its inception, and is very active and effective in growing the community. His exemplary posts have been cited in other projects. I'm super happy to have Kenn accepted the nomination, and I'm confident that he'll serve with distinction.
As for myself, I'm not going anywhere. I'm still around and will be as active as I have recently been. Thrilled to be able to pass the baton to such a key member of this community and to have less administrative work to do ;-).
Please join me in welcoming Kenn to his new role, and I ask that you support him as much as possible. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
