Milinkovich Named Eclipse's Executive Director

The Eclipse Board of Directors has named Mike Milinkovich executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, effective June 1. Milinkovich's broad experience in business development, hands-on knowledge of object-oriented technology, and responsiveness to the needs of the developer community led to his selection. Milinkovich previously served as vice president of OracleAS Technical Services at Oracle Corporation. During his more than 20 years of experience in the technology industry, he demonstrated solid executive leadership, fulfilling both technical and business roles.

"I see my role as broadening the Eclipse open-source project and continuing the rapid growth of the Eclipse ecosystem," said Milinkovich. "It is my goal that Eclipse continues to be a focal point for open-source innovation in the software industry."

Milinkovich's initial priorities will include the following tasks:

  • Building the membership of the Eclipse Foundation and expanding the ecosystem of users and contributors.
  • Ensuring a successful launch of the Eclipse 3.0 release in early summer 2004.
  • Establishing a solid foundation for the new open WebTools project, which extends Eclipse to server-side Java.
  • Forming the Eclipse Management Organization and supervising the requirements, planning and architecture councils.

    His leadership will be critical to establishing, extending and implementing the Eclipse roadmap and engaging with open-source projects, commercial development organizations, consumers, academic and research communities, standard bodies and individuals to grow the Eclipse ecosystem.

    Milinkovich has held key management positions at Oracle, WebGain, The Object People, and Object Technology International Inc., assuming responsibility for development, product management, marketing, strategic planning, finance, and business development. Milinkovich earned his master of science degree in Information and Systems Sciences and a bachelor of commerce degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
