ICANN CEO Search Update: Position Description and Application

23 October 2023
By Chris Chapman

I'm pleased to share that the ICANN President and CEO Position Description and application portal are now live on Perrett Laver's website.

ICANN is celebrating 25 years of international collaboration in overseeing the coordination of the Internet's unique identifier systems and we are looking for an exceptional leader to serve as ICANN's next President and CEO.

This is a unique opportunity for a leader who will have significant global responsibilities and, more generally, possess the skills outlined in the Position Description.

Interested applicants should submit a CV and covering letter detailing how they fulfill the Position Description and outlining their core competencies, attributes, and experience. The deadline for applications is 27 November 2023.

As I shared in my previous blog, the Board has partnered with Perrett Laver to conduct this global search. In addition to the full Position Description, you can find more details on the role and on ICANN on the Perrett Laver website.

For more information about the search for ICANN's next leader, please visit the ICANN CEO Search Committee page. As committee Chair, I will continue to share updates on the process with the community and progress with the search.
