Candidates for the Board

Stefan Busemann

About me

TYPO3 is an important part of my live. I was drawn into the community in 2005 and was inspired by its people and philopsophy. Further I am one of the founders of in2code and my most successful projects are my three kids. 

My motivation

Since 2012 I am member of the Board of the TYPO3 Association. We started many projects for the Association, f.e. funding the company or implement new structure and processes for the TYPO3 Assocation. I feel, that my mission is not accomplished yet. So I would like to continue my work.

Ric van Westhreenen

About me

Since TYPO3 3.5 I’m a passionate evangelist of TYPO3 and devote much of my free time for the project on mostly less technical parts. Having owned a successfully internet agency in the Netherlands, I’m now self-employed and working for mainly large organizations (500+ employees) on complex projects related to either web or IT. 

My motivation

I have been active within the TYPO3 community since 2009 and vice-president within the Board since 2013. Since then I have been part of the many changes like improving the trademark rules and governance, helping people with difficult questions about the usage of our trademark, and since 2018 working on improving the way of work for official TYPO3 events. Next to that with our team from the boards I worked on numerous other tasks. As team we are not finished yet with the plans and ideas we have. 

Also I have not finished the plans I have for either the trademark or events organization. I think that we can do more in a more efficient way. By having a strong trademark our brand will improve. By making it easier to organize events, our reach will grow and as such the market for TYPO3 will grow. Those are in essence the plans I stand for in the next few years for which I like to continue my work in the Board.
