Andre Copelin

Vice President, Systems and Support


As Vice President of Systems and Support, I am responsible for developing and leading the implementation of our IT architecture strategy. I joined the Internet Society in July 2014 as the Chief of Staff to the President and CEO.
Prior to joining the Internet Society, I worked at Verizon Communications where I was engaged with a number of social impact and public policy initiatives. Throughout my career at the Federal Communications Commission, Dell, and Verizon, I followed a belief that you “use technology to help you work smarter and not harder.” That tenet should be visible in the development and maturation of the Internet Society's systems and tools.

I love to coach basketball and bowl. I have bowled 10 perfect “300” games. Once we come out of the pandemic, I plan to travel again so my wife and I can finish off our bucket list.
