ICANN president and CEO Rod Beckstrom has been awarded a performance-related bonus for the 12-month period ending today, it has emerged.

The undisclosed amount was approved by the ICANN board of directors during an unannounced meeting last Saturday.

As it is classed as a personal personnel matter, the portion of his “at risk component” approved was not revealed, but it is known that Beckstrom’s annual bonus is capped at $195,000.

His base salary is $750,000.

It’s the second consecutive year that he has received some part of his bonus. For the year ended June 30, 2010, the board voted it through in December.

As Beckstrom enters the third year of his three-year contract, it’s understood that he has already been making overtures to the board to extend his tenure for a second term.

    Why the hell should he get that kind of salary and bonus for that job?

    Again, another example of the corruption of ICANN.

    They are SO self-serving.
