Article of the Week
Göran Marby Portrait.jpg

ICANNWiki would like to welcome Göran Marby to ICANN!
On 8 February 2016, ICANN announced that it has selected Göran Marby to succeed Fadi Chehadé, who is stepping down on March 15, 2016. We believe that Göran brings a great skill set to ICANN that will be instrumental in taking the IANA Transition across the finish line and further empowering the global multistakeholder model. Marby will step into the CEO position in May 2016. Akram Atallah will take the position of interim CEO between Chehadé's departure and Marby's onboarding.

Göran Marby is currently the Director General at the Swedish Post & Telecom Agency in Stockholm, Sweden and brings over 20 years years of experience as a senior executive in the IT sector, including founding the security software firm, Appgate.

What We're Working On
Giving everyone a voice in the future of the internet is our mission statement. That's why we have started a campaign to translate a set of essential articles into other languages. We have a good start with Spanish and Chinese content translated by a number of generous organizations. However, we do not want to stop here. The internet is a global entity that deserves to be understood and utilized by all. If you can contribute to this inititative in any way, please contact us.
