> Paul first joined OWASP in August of 2014 and became the full time Executive Director in May 2015.  He has helped the organization to grow globally and has made an enormous difference in our community.  He will be greatly missed.  He brought order and professionalism.  He raised our own high expectations and delivered on the things he set out to do.  He made all of us that worked closely with him better and more effective.  He helped to set long term strategic goals and managed OWASP’s fiduciary responsibilities with ease.
> On behalf of the Board of Directors, we will miss Paul for his leadership and friendly wry knowing smile as the board worked to make difficult choices.  I doubt I can express my own sinking feeling of grief at the news, which came suddenly and too early.
> Paul’s family asked that we direct those in the community that would like to show support or make a donation to do so in Paul Ritchie’s name to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation at https://www.themmrf.org.
