ProCogia proudly announces the appointment of Joseph Rickert as the Executive Director of the R Consortium. With Mehar Pratap Singh, our CEO, assuming the role of Chairman of the R Consortium last month, these strategic appointments underscore ProCogia’s unwavering commitment and influential position within the R community. In his capacity as Board Chair, Mehar is poised to lead the strategic direction of the R Consortium, fostering ongoing initiatives to champion the R Language, and providing robust support to both the R Foundation and the broader R Community. Simultaneously, Joseph, in his role as Executive Director, will spearhead the day-to-day operations of the R Consortium. Joseph brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having been an integral part of the R Community team at Microsoft, contributing to the foundation of the R Consortium. He served as Microsoft’s appointed member on the R Consortium’s Infrastructure Steering Committee and played a pivotal role in administering the R Consortium’s R User Group programs. Following his tenure at Microsoft, Joseph joined RStudio (now Posit), where he served as RStudio’s appointed director to the Board of Directors, holding the position of chair for three years. Joseph’s firm belief in the R language and its expansive ecosystem, constituting the world’s largest open repository of statistical knowledge and reproducible scientific computing, aligns seamlessly with ProCogia’s vision. He is steadfast in his conviction regarding the potential of the R Community to continually contribute to the advancement of scientific computing knowledge through global collaborations spanning government, industry, and academia. Joseph’s profound insights and extensive experience will play a crucial role in ensuring that ProCogia’s professional services remain at the forefront, catering to the needs of Posit customers and the broader R community.
