ICANN has appointed Thomas Spiller to be its first vice president, Europe.
Spiller has worked for the French Prime Minister’s Office, but most recently was head of global policy strategy at the software vendor SAS.
He’s a French national, but will be based in ICANN’s Brussels office when he begins, August 29.
“I look forward to reinforcing ICANN’s outreach to all stakeholders and strengthening the ongoing inclusive dialogue with Europe’s Internet users, national governments, EU institutions and business,” he said in a press release.
If you’re counting, Spiller will be ICANN’s eighth vice president, the third to be appointed this year.
