- preferably someone who is willing to be in the founder's meeting (or follow 
it closely) 
- and someone who will communicate with the other teams on various problematic 
points (QA, triage, dev, ...)

i would think that the first person will probably have lots more meetings
and the second person will probably have to be a good decider for small 

if you look at these requirements, that means that being an expert packager is 
not enough(nor is it the most important point); the major points of these 
person are the personalities and qualities as a person; and perhaps earlier 
experience in managing people and guiding them.

the second person should preferably be an expert packager, someone who knows 
what consequences will be when they decide something; even though it'd be 

I would like for each candidate, to see some resume sort of thing, to see if 
he/she is suitable for this kind of important job.

just my 2cents

so, anyone who wants to make his/her candidacy
