So who's going to be ICANN CEO?
by Kieren McCarthy | 21 Feb 2012 |
ICANN will announce its new CEO in April, the Board committee tasked with finding Rod Beckstrom's replacement has announced.
In an update on the ICANN website, the committee announced that it has carried out initial teleconferences with 16 candidates, having been sent a list of 27 from search company Odgers, Ray & Berndtson (see the Economist ad for the job).
From there, the committee will carry out face-to-face interviews with an unspecified "subset" of that 16 before putting a final slate of candidates in front of the ICANN Board for "intensive interviewing". The target completion date is mid-April.
