New Domain Name Czar

06 07 2009

Following the conclusion of the most recent ICANN meeting held in Sydney, Rod Beckstrom was announced as the new ICANN CEO, replacing Paul Twomey.

Beckstrom is the former Director of the U.S. National Cybersecurity Center (NCSC), where he formed an effective working group of leaders from the nation’s top six cybersecurity centers spanning the civilian, military and intelligence communities.

In addition to his formal military / intelligence rolls, Beckstrom has also been active in the not for profit sector, as a board member of trustees of the Environmental Defense Fund and the Jamii Bora Trust, a micro-lending group based in Nairobi, Kenya.

Beckstrom takes the helm at a time when ICANN is in the process of rolling out one its biggest projects yet, the introduction of new GTLDs.
