Founder-member, CISPE, reinforces commitment and support for GAIA-X

Brussels. 7th June 2021. CISPE is pleased to announce the election of its Secretary General Francisco Mingorance to the board of GAIA-X. CISPE was a founding member of GAIA-X – the European initiative to deliver an open, transparent and secure digital ecosystem. As such CISPE has been committed to the vision and principles of the GAIA-X organisation from the outset and is honoured that its Secretary General has been selected to serve on the board. The appointment will continue the deep engagement and cooperation between the two organisations. CISPE is the only pure cloud association to be appointed to the GAIA-X Board.

Commenting on his appointment, Francisco Mingorance, said; “It is truly an honour to be chosen to serve this important organisation. In my campaign I indicated my commitment to three key issues which I will now champion through my board appointment: seeking an end to vendor lock-in; promoting the right to data sovereignty; and highlighting the essential role of climate neutrality across the industry.

“I am grateful to all those members who voted for me and for the continued involvement of CISPE as key decision-makers in this project.”
