Our Founder

OSS Consultants was established to bridge the knowledge gap in the management of open-source software use. Many organizations remain unaware of the potential risks associated with the use of open-source software. Even more surprisingly, the majority are not cognizant of the open-source software being used within their operations.

With roots in over two decades of engineering experience at General Motors, the company’s founder, Russ Eling, designed and executed one of the pioneering open-source software governance programs back in 2013. This initiative was regarded as one of the most comprehensive open-source software programs in the automotive industry. Russ also played a pivotal role in constructing and leading the Open-Source Program Office that was instrumental for reviewing software in every component used in GM vehicles worldwide.

Today, Russ and his team continue the tradition of delivering industry-acclaimed expertise, helping both industry giants and emerging businesses in seamlessly navigating the open-source landscape.
