TOC nomination: Mark Peek

Kit Colbert <kit@...>

Hello CNCF community,


VMware would like to nominate Mark Peek (markpeek@...) as a member to the CNCF Technical Oversight Committee.


Mark is VP, Principal Engineer of Cloud-Native Applications at VMware, where he oversees product architecture and open source efforts. With over 30 years of experience and passion for open source, Mark would be ideal to drive the creation and adoption of new technologies for building cloud native applications and services. During his career, Mark has focused on cloud, virtualization, devops, development automation, and appliance form factors. He has enjoyed contributing to and continues to contribute to open source projects such as FreeBSD, Packer, and developed Troposphere (a Cloud Formation Python library). With his current and past leadership positions held as Principal Engineer at VMware and Cisco as well as VP, Chief Engineer at IronPort Systems, has provided him the skills and experience necessary to be responsible for stewardship of CNCF projects, foster the evolution of the ecosystem, and serve the community.


I support Mark’s nomination as he is a strong technologist and brings a wealth of experience in both architecture & OSS.
