My colleague, Kim May – Vice President of Business Development at The Fillmore Group, has been elected Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Baltimore/Washington DB2 Users Group. Kim has served on the board of BWDB2UG since 2005 in many capacities such as programming and membership. BWDB2UG continues to provide strong technical leadership for DB2 practitioners in the US Mid-Atlantic region. Kim takes over from long-time board Chair Steve Rosenberger.
Kim is also an IBM Champion and is very active in the DB2 Community. As an example, she presented at the IBM World of Watson conference in Las Vegas in 2016. Kim recently returned from the zAnalytics Bootcamp held annually at IBM Silicon Valley Lab.
Kim’s business focus in 2017 is the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator (IDAA) and DB2 running on Linux on System z. Please join me and the BWDB2UG board in supporting Kim in her new role.
