CEO Succession at the Internet Society – Open Call for CEO Candidates

Gonzalo Camarillo
By Gonzalo CamarilloChair, Internet Society Board of Trustees

As I discussed in my notes to the community during the last months, at our last board meeting Kathy Brown, ISOC’s (Internet Society’s) President & CEO, informed the Board of Trustees that she will not seek another extension of her contract. Consequently, the board formed a CEO Search Committee, which is a subset of the board. The CEO Search Committee selected Perrett Laver as the search firm that will support the committee and the board during the whole process. Please, read my last note for further background information.

Per our plan, we are launching the Open Call for Candidates today, Friday, 9 March 2018.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 UTC on Friday, 6 April 2018.

If you would like to download the Candidate Pack or apply for the position, please visit the Perrett Laver web site using the following link:

Per the web page above, if you would like to have a conversation with Perrett Laver regarding the role, please email the lead researcher on this search, Daniel Flynn:

The search firm will generate a short list of candidates so that the CEO Search Committee can make a final decision and select one. You can send input to the CEO Search Committee using the following email address:

Emails sent to this email address will be treated as confidential within the Board of Trustees.

Please, feel free to distribute this call to potential candidates who may be interested. Thanks!
