Fadi Chehade to co-chair WIC

The outgoing president and chief executive officer of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Mr. Fadi Chehadé will be heading to Wuzhen to co-chair the World Internet Conference (WIC), reports ITRealms.

Confirming this, Mr. Chehade in a blog post at the wake of Christmas noted that though he would be leaving ICANN after Marrekech public meeting in March 2016 in Morocco, he will be co-chairing the WIC this year.

“I most recently accepted the invitation to co-chair a newly formed advisory committee to the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen,” he said, pointing out that the first meeting of the committee will take place in Summer 2016.  

His goal, Mr. Chehade said, is to continue to advocate for global multi-stakeholder governance and a single, open, and interoperable Internet, just as he reiterated that his acceptance was based on future role in his personal capacity.

Chehade further said this update has become necessary as he had previously shared future plans with the ICANN’s Internet community.

“I will be leaving ICANN in March 2016, and I have been sharing my future plans. As previously announced,” he declared, stressing that he had also accepted an appointment with a financial institution, and in addition.

“I’ve been invited to serve in several part-time advisory roles post ICANN,” he asserted.
The Christmas week, ICANN president disclosed he met with the Board at its request to give a debriefing on recent activities and plans for the coming months.

“I re-affirmed to the Board and now to the community that I will continue to give ICANN’s operations and the IANA Stewardship Transition my full attention until the end of my tenure,” Chehade said.
