Almost a year after Richard Stallman the founding president of Free Software Foundation was forced to resign FSF board has finally elected a new president.
The new president is Geoffrey Knauth. As per Phoronix Geoffrey is a computer science professor at Lycoming College Pennsylvania state in the USA. However I did not find any proof to validate this claim.
Geoffreys own bio on FSF website mentions that he is an independent software contractor has worked as a programmer senior associate systems engineer and systems analyst at various companies. He has contributed to the development of GNU Objective-C project. He holds a BA in Economics from Harvard University and is also the treasurer of the FSF.
From his personal website last updated in 2014 I learned that he also volunteers for Civil Air Petrol as a mission pilot. A person of many talents Geoffrey is also fluent in Russian and French languages.
