Prague, Czech Republic… Fadi Chehadé, a leader in the formation of progressive Internet enterprises, has been named as the next President and Chief Executive Officer of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
“Fadi has an amazing track record of success and the obvious leadership qualities to help carry ICANN into the next stage of its evolution,” said Dr. Stephen Crocker, Chair of the Board of Directors. “His international background and multi-linguistic skills will help to make ICANN an ever more globally oriented organization. It’s hard to imagine how we could have found anyone better suited for the top position.”
