The Internet Engineering Task Force has named domain industry veteran Jay Daley as its new executive director.

In a blog post last week, the IETF said that Daley beat 133 other “highly qualified applicants” for the job.

He’s the first person to hold the executive director title since the IETF formalized itself into an LLC entity owned by the Internet Society a year ago.

Daley’s most-recent activity in the domain industry was as interim CEO of Public Interest Registry between Brian Cute and Jon Nevett, a position he held for about six months last year.

He continues to sit on PIR’s board of directors

PIR is of course another ISOC subsidiary and its biggest funding source, due to the tens of millions of dollars of .org registry fees it donates every year.

Daley was previously CEO of .nz ccTLD registry NZRS and head of technology at .uk registry Nominet.
