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 
 “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
