FreePBX Project Leadership Update

Happy Friday all. Today marks my final day as an employee at Sangoma.

Nothing major, just looking to have a bit of a rest and consider some options while I enjoy some summer weather.

Do y’all know the effort and amount of maple syrup it took to get @lgaetz to be on the team? Me neither there is an NDA but I have a hint

Any way all the best and know FreePBX is better with you.

End of an era. You have truly been amazing in all faucets. You really helped me on day one (knowing nothing about Asterisk or FreePBX), and never stopped after. Your responses and ideas, and your general encouragement to everyone in the forum moved mountains. You had profound impacts, not only just with us, but also with the customers and people you touched, through us.

There have been many transitions, and while those are never easy, they can also be quite hard. You helped keep things stable and moving during that time. I don’t think things would be where they are without you. Thanks for everything!

Lorne,
I too owe you a great deal of thanks. Your assistance was appreciated so much. We’re a tiny little spec in the FreePBX world and you taking the time to help us when our system wasn’t right was much appreciated. As was all the assistance I’ve seen you give here in the community.

I’m not far from knocking on some new doors myself. There’s both fear and excitement in doing so. May your new adventures turn out to be full of the good kind of excitement. As for the rest, it’s overrated.

Thanks a lot @lgaetz for bringing high standards to freePBX/Sangoma! I hope you leaving doesn’t mean that the decisions of the current CEO are bad for freePBX (& Sangoma?). I already miss you…

Thanks, @lgaetz for all that you’ve done for our community. I’ve enjoyed working with you over the years and look forward to our paths crossing again - I expect they will.

Until then, so long, and thanks for all the fish!
