Ms Anne-Rachel          Inné          appointed AFRINIC Chief Operations Officer
Cybercity,          Ebene, Mauritius, 31 July 2012 - After a        rigorous        recruitment process, it is my pleasure to announce the        appointment of Ms        Anne-Rachel Inné as Chief Operations Officer of AFRINIC.
Ms Inné brings to        AFRINIC a wealth of experience having worked for many years at        the Internet        Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) where she was        latterly the Manager Regional Relations, Africa.        Ms        Inné is well known in the African Internet community from her        past 14 years        service first as representative of African private sector at        DNSO, consultant        and staff at ICANN, and her continuous active involvement with        AFRINIC,        AfTLD and AfNOG communities at different levels.
As        Manager Regional Relations, Ms Inné served as ICANN’s primary        link to the        African regional community (Governments, Private Sector, Civil        Society,        Academia, Media, Individual users, and Regional Internet        Registries, among        other groups).
Prior        to joining ICANN, Ms Inné was an entrepreneur and consultant in        the Information        Communication Technology for development (ICT4D) sector. She has        also        previously worked as a model, a translator/Interpreter, a sales        manager and a        highly appreciated ICT4D consultant. She is a founding member of        the African        Enterprise network. 
She        produced and publicised Learning by Doing at the Institute for        Communications        and Development: Lessons emerging from the ICT Stories Projects        for the benefit        of projects and the wider community. She was a member of the        Bureau of the        African Group at World Summit on the          Information Society (WSIS)        as a representative of the African Private Sector and a Member        of the Gender        Coalition during WSIS and helped write Creating Your Own        National Gender        Programme – A Practical Guide. 
Ms        Inné is featured as ICT Expert in the International Labour        Organisation/International Organisation for          Migration        (ILO/IOM) book for the AUC: African Women at the Service of the        Union. 
In        2010 Ms Inné was awarded both the Network Information &        Infrastructure        (NI&I) Service Award for 2010 in recognition of her        contribution to        improving and sustaining Africa's Internet environment and the        AFRINIC        Leadership Award for her demonstrated immense commitment and        continued        engagement with AFRINIC & African Network Operators' Group        (AfNOG)        communities in the interest of Africa as a whole.
She holds a Master        of Literature and an MBA in International Finance/Economics.
 “As a member of the community who worked          towards the establishment of AFRINIC, I am very proud to join          a team which has          demonstrated that little stands in the way of will and a job          well done! It is a          privilege to continue serving our region and community as COO          of AFRINIC,” says        Ms Inné on her appointment.  
We are very proud        at AFRINIC to soon welcome her among us and I am personally        excited to be        able work with her in achieving our mission and objectives in        Africa. Ms Inné will take        up the appointment on 15 August 2012.
