Vivit Board Director
Vice President Operations/
Nominations Chair

I am pleased to announce that the 2018 Board of Directors election is complete.

I would like to take a moment to thank those of you who took the time to vote in our recent election. For those that do not already know, Vivit has a Board of Directors that consists of nine directors who manage our staff and provide leadership and direction to our Local User Group and Special Interest Group leaders throughout the world. Vivit had 5 open seats for the election: 33-year terms, 1–2-year term, and 11-year term.

It is my distinct pleasure to announce the 2018 class of elected Vivit Board Members:

Richard Bishop
Lloyds Banking Group
Lancashire, United Kingdom
Mark Ford
Charlotte, NC USA
Bob Crews
Checkpoint Technologies
Tarpon Springs, FL USA
Chris Carpenter
Bellevue, WA USA
Jonathon Wright
Digital Assured
London, United Kingdom

I would also like to thank the other nominated candidates who although they were not elected to the board this year, they were exceedingly strong candidates who volunteer their time as Local User Group or Special Interest Group leaders. Vivit is proud to have them as leaders within our organization and hope that they’ll consider standing for election in future years.

Pedro Miguel Jeronimo Mendes
Lisbon, Portugal
Ramesh Subramanian
NTT Data
Boston, MA USA

Finally, I would also like to take a moment to thank Karen Semonson and Tammy Young who are both departing the Vivit Board this year. Karen and Tammy, both longtime Board Directors, are stepping away from the Vivit Board due to work commitments and personal obligations. Their departures will be a great loss to our team. Vivit wishes them both well and hopes that they will stay in touch.

Karen Semonson
Lands’ End
Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Tammy Young
Aflac Worldwide
Columbus, GA USA
Thank you to all our Vivit members who took the time to participate in our 2018 Board Elections.
