Introducing Jake Watson - VillageReach Technology Director and Information Systems Group Lead

Hello All -

I wanted to introduce you to a new face you will be seeing in the OpenLMIS Community. Jake Watson has recently joined VillageReach as Technology Director and Information Systems Group Lead. Jake is coming to VillageReach from the IRC, where he developed and built their ICT for Programs team. He has spent the last several years living in Jordan coordinating IRC’s Syria Regional Response. Jake stared his career in software development and technology project development in Seattle, where he worked for a number of tech start-ups before deciding that he make a move into humanitarian and global health work. He bring expertise in open source software, logistics for humanitarian response, and has experience building successful collaborations across the globe.

Jake will be an integral part of the OpenLMIS community and project leadership, and will be getting involved in the re-architecture planning right away. Look for Jake as he starts getting involved via the message boards and upcoming committee calls. Please join me in welcoming Jake to the OpenLMIS team!

Best,
