> HI Everyone!
> We are excited to announce that *Tyler Radford* has accepted the position
> of Executive Director of Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. Since Tyler was
> named Interim Executive Director 5 months ago, HOT successfully initiated a
> new 13-month preparedness and response project in Indonesia, scaled up
> operations in Dar es Salaam, completed the first stage of the OpenAerialMap
> project, launched the disaster Activation Protocol / HOT Training Center,
> and delivered a refreshed HOT Export tool.
> “Tyler’s first day with HOT as our interim Executive Director was at the
> HOT Community Summit. This was just days after the Nepal Earthquake. From
> the moment he joined HOT, Tyler engaged with the community, tackled
> projects, renewed fundraising plans and began building plans for HOT’s
> future - both for the organization and community. HOT has amazing
> opportunities to build and foster community mapping everywhere. I hope you
> will join me in helping Tyler and HOT get to the next level,“ said Heather
> Leson President of HOT’s Board of Directors.
> From Tyler:
> Since joining HOT, I have been extremely proud of the scale of
> accomplishments of our global volunteer community, staff, and contractors.
> From leading us through HOT’s largest disaster response activation to date,
> to working side by side with communities as they develop their own maps for
> the first time, to launching groundbreaking initiatives such as
> OpenAerialMap -- the dedication of HOT’s people is what defines us and
> enables us to deliver on our humanitarian commitment. As we move through
> the coming weeks and months together, I look forward to designing better
> ways to engage, support, and recognize our people, including leaders and
> future leaders in our global community. I also look forward to planning new
> and exciting mapping tools which reach more volunteers and produce improved
> mapping outcomes. Finally, I look forward to continuing to work with our
> partners and donors as we contribute to disaster response and to achieving
> the Sustainable Development Goals.
> HOT’s Board of Directors fully supports Tyler in his mandate mission. We
> invite the community and our wider network of supporters to congratulate
> Tyler. We would also like to thank all the other applicants for their
> interest in HOT and for their dedication to technology for social good.
