ICANN CEO Search Update: Executive Search Agency Appointment

2 October 2023
By Chris Chapman

As the Chair of the ICANN Board's CEO Search Committee, I'm pleased to announce that the Board has appointed Perrett Laver to lead ICANN's worldwide search to find its next President and CEO.

Perrett Laver is a global executive search firm with operations in over 70 countries and with an important focus on mission-driven sectors.

The Board's search for ICANN's next leader remains on track, consistent with the timeline that I shared in my last update. The Search Committee expects the candidate search process to last through the end of this year, with candidate interviews commencing in early 2024.

The Search Committee will continue to share updates with the community, and we'll be sure to provide information on where to find the ICANN President and CEO role listing and how to apply.

For more information about the search process, please visit the committee's webpage.
