The OpenChain Project is delighted to announce that Indira Bhatt will act as the OpenChain Community Representative during our inaugural Steering Committee meeting at 8:30am Pacific on the 13th of September.

Indira is a Manager in KPMG’s San Francisco Advisory practice with nearly 10 years of experience in the area of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) due diligence. She has extensive experience in setting up FOSS compliance teams including leading, training and mentoring junior and senior analysts. Indira has helped various organizations successfully contribute code to the open source community and establish FOSS review boards by either defining or refining existing governance and usage and approval policies and procedures. Prior to this, Indira was a windows mobile developer for various startups in the Bay Area.

“There is nothing more important than community when building international collaboration,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Our first Steering Committee meeting marks both a sign of maturity in the project and a new avenue for ensuring community perspectives are considered in each critical decision around our standard. We envision rotating the community seats with each quarterly meeting, and starting today with Indira we are making this process a reality.”
