The Eclipse Foundation is fortunate to have some very talented people working full-time on behalf of the Eclipse community. Below is the list of our staff.
Eclipse email addresses all follow the email@example.com convention.
Outside of work, Mike's passions are his family, the family cottage and hockey (as a coach, player and fan) in pretty much that order. When he's not working, or traveling for work, you will probably find him involved in one of those three things.

Mikaël is developing cool new stuff and fixing annoying old bugs in the Eclipse Platform. He also helps take care of the released bits of the Eclipse Foundation. When he's not at his computer, he enjoys spending quality time with his family and friends and playing good old video games.

Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he fills the dual roles of Director of Open Source Projects and Evangelist. He spends his days working with the many Eclipse open source project teams, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.
Wayne authors the Eclipse Hints, Tips, and Random Musings blog.Follow @waynebeaton
Assistant to the Eclipse Foundation team in Europe. I love hiking and spending my time outdoors in general. Still a huge movie buff though.
Gaël contributes to the development of the Eclipse ecosystem across Europe, and is proud to be the chair of EclipseCon France that comes back in Toulouse every year in June. Outside of work, Gaël loves spending time with his family and practice horse-riding with his daughter.Follow @gblondelle
Benjamin builds bridges between Eclipse projects (especially the ones related to the Internet of Things), and other open-source communities. Outside of work, Benjamin loves traveling the world with a camera around his neck.

Fred is a java developer by trade, based out of Cologne, Germany. Responsible for supporting Eclipse projects, focusing on build and release processes. In his spare time, Fred can be found kite surfing off the coast of the Netherlands and Spain, or building quadcopters and testing their flight capabilities.Follow @fr3dg
Susan contributes to the outreach efforts around the European Research projects, as well as conferences and events. She also manages the back office for the European entity. On the other side of the work/life balance, Susan enjoys being outdoors, spending time with friends and family and a round or two of golf.
When not in front of a monitor, Anne prefers activities that involve wearing a helmet--horseback riding, skiing, and cycling. One of her favorite books is The Chicago Manual of Style, so if you need help with the nitpicking details of writing in English, she's happy to help.Follow @annejacko
Shawn is a member of the Eclipse IP team. When he's not poring over code, Shawn enjoys spending time with his family, playing guitar and singing, fishing, hiking, and boating at the family cottage, and cheering on his beloved Ottawa Senators.Follow @shawnkilpatrick
Philippe manages the Eclipse Foundation contributions to European-funded research projects. When he is traveling, Philippe enjoys photographing the places he visits, and when he isn't on the road, he is having fun with his family, riding his motorcycle or playing jazz with some good friends.Follow @phkrief
When not buried in the numbers, Chris is coaching his boys in hockey, basketball and baseball. Maybe in a few years Chris can start playing again in addition to coaching.
Perri joined the Eclipse Foundation in May 2010. Her focus is on membership retention, management and sales, including sales of our advertising portfolio and sponsorships for our conferences. Outside of work Perri enjoys spending time with family and friends, medical research, volunteer work for organizations dealing with children with special needs, running, cooking and baking. Perri hopes to one day accomplish her long time dream of a unique day program for young adults with special needs.Follow @perrieclipse
Sharon is a member of the IP team. When she is not working, she likes to spend her time enjoying the outdoors with her family.
Ralph's role at the Eclipse Foundation is focused on growing the Eclipse Ecosystem across Europe.
Ralph's passion outside of work is golf, both as a player and as a coach for children just starting the game. He's also helped both Mike and Donald to improve their games.Follow @ralph_mueller
Tanja joined Eclipse Foundation as Jakarta EE Program Manager June 2018. Having been involved with Java and Java EE for quite some time, revitalizing Enterprise Java seems like a good challenge and a great fit for her! Outside the office, she loves spending time with her family and friends, enjoys art events, outdoor activities (even in the winter!), visiting different countries and most of all spending summers on a beach.Follow @TanjaEclipse
Heather has joined the finance department. When she's not working, she likes being outdoors. Some activities include fishing, hunting, and cross country skiing. Her favourite hobby would be anything regarding horses. Teaching new riders, training young horses, or just going on a trail ride.
Jake's role consists of engaging with current and prospective members to ensure their needs are met as well as making them aware of everything the Foundation has to offer. On weekends, you can find him at the cottage or on a golf course somewhere.
Cydnie's role at Eclipse is as an Administrative Assistant. Outside of work, you can find her doing just about anything involving water. She enjoys reading, swimming and spending her summer days back home (in the Bahamas) at the beach.
Stephanie is the Marketing Specialist, using her expertise to help implement strategies and plans for promotional materials, new campaigns, and other department activities. In her downtime, she enjoys being a foodie- blogging about local restaurants, cycling the Ottawa trails, and developing her skills in graphic design.Follow @stephaniejswart
Marc’s mission is to further the growth of the Eclipse Foundation Ecosystem, with a special focus on its Working Group, LocationTech. When not on the road or in the air, Marc enjoys family, friends, tennis and the mindless chopping of wood on the weekends at his cabin.Follow @marcvloemans
Matt spends his time triaging the Webmaster inbox and putting out fires. If you can't take the heat, stay out of the data center.
Paul’s role at the Foundation is to drive value for our members. His interests outside the Foundation are diverse, but all centre around family, friends, learning (and a bit of teaching) - all mixed with a heavy dose of travel.
