*ICANN Board Approves Two-Year Extension of President and CEO’s Term

09 October 2020

LOS ANGELES – 9 October 2020 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers (ICANN) announced today that the ICANN Board of Directors has
approved <https://newsalerts.icann.org/f003d0P08B002R22CNE4g00> a two-year
extension to President and CEO Göran Marby's Executive Services Agreement
term. It will now expire on 23 May 2024.

"I'm pleased to announce that the ICANN Board has voted to offer Göran a
two-year extension to his current contract," said Maarten Botterman,
Chairman of the ICANN Board. "Göran is a CEO who has excelled in reaching
out and working closely with the community and Board to address the
challenges and opportunities we face."

In its rationale for the resolution
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/f003d0P08B002R22CNE4g00>, the Board noted
that Marby is "dedicated to ICANN's mission, including supporting the ICANN
Community in its policy development work, and is very committed to
continuing help ensure and solidify the understanding of ICANN's role
within the Internet community." An extension to May 2024 will provide
continuity in leadership during the initial implementation of the FY21-FY25
Operating and Financial Plan, as well as the ongoing work over its first
several years of operation.

"In the nearly four and a half years that I have served as ICANN President
and CEO, it has been my honor and privilege to lead the ICANN organization
staff and work hand-in-hand with the ICANN Board and community. I thank the
ICANN org staff for their commitment, support, and exceptional work," said
Marby. "ICANN provides an important service to the global Internet
community, and our work is never done. I am humbled by the Board's trust in
me, and look forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you have to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique, so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and
a community with participants from all over the world.
