In a recent Resolution, the Internet Society (ISOC) Board of Trustees offered its ‘heartfelt thanks’ to outgoing CEO Lynn St. Amour for her tireless work for the organization and her service over the past 15 years. The Resolution comes as January 31, 2014 marks Ms. St. Amour’s last official day with the Internet Society.
Lynn St. Amour joined the Internet Society in 1998 as the Executive Director of its Europe, Middle East, and Africa division, was promoted to be ISOC's global Executive Director and COO in 1999 and then advanced to its President and CEO in 2001.
The Resolution recognized that Lynn's leadership and efforts over the years have established a stable financial foundation for the Internet Society by expanding organizational memberships, establishing the Public Interest Registry and growing the organization's global footprint. Ms. St. Amour also helped establish the Internet Society as the organizational and financial home of the IETF.
“Her leadership and efforts have established the Internet Society as the preeminent voice and champion for an open and evolving Internet,” noted Board Chairman Bob Hinden. “She is a valuable member of the ISOC global community, and her many contributions will continue to benefit the Internet Society for years to come.”
