I have some sad news for the Opscode community:
Mitch Hill passed away yesterday morning after a difficult fight with cancer. Mitch had a storied career at Accenture, Avanade, and most recently Opscode. He was Opscode’s CEO for two years before he stepped down this summer; he remained a close and trusted advisor until the end. Mitch was an extraordinary individual who made an impact on everyone he touched in both his personal and professional life. He made a tremendous impact to Opscode and to our team; we would not be where we are today without his leadership.
There will be a service for Mitch open to all that know him:
Thursday, December 19th
Museum of Flight
9404 East Marginal Way S
Seattle, WA 98108-4097
Mitch’s family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Here’s a Mitch-specific link: http://bit.ly/1d0vcDT
Mitch will be dearly missed. Thank you for all your kind thoughts.
