13 <http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/chehade.htm#>

Fadi Chehadé's career has been defined by building consensus and promoting
collaborative technologies and practices. He has more than 25 years of
experience in building and leading progressive Internet enterprises,
leveraging relationships with senior executives and government officials
across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

Chehadé, age 50, is a citizen of Egypt, Lebanon, and the United States. He
was born in Beirut, Lebanon, to Egyptian parents and left the then war-torn
country in 1980 at the age of 18. He speaks fluent Arabic, English, French,
and Italian.

Most recently he served as Chief Executive Officer of Vocado LLC, a U.S.
firm that is a provider of cloud-based software for the administration of
educational institutions.

Prior to Vocado, Chehadé was CEO of CoreObjects Software, Inc., a leader in
new product software development services for both large and growing
companies. He oversaw the expansion of the company to include more than 400
engineers and its successful acquisition by Symphony Services.

Prior to his role at CoreObjects, Chehadé served as the General Manager of
IBM's Global Technology Services in the Middle East and North Africa. Based
in Dubai, he led a team across an emerging region experiencing high growth.
He also built and managed a new global business for IBM, providing managed
services to large clients in telecommunications, aerospace and retail to
improve the accuracy, depth and timeliness of business information
visibility across demand and supply chains.

Chehadé founded and has led three companies since 1987:

   - *Viacore*, launched in 1999, was the world's leading B2B process
   integration hub offering a complete solution of specialized software and
   services for global 500 companies. In 2006 he led Vicaore's successful
   acquisition by IBM.
   - *RosettaNet*, a non-profit multi-stakeholder company founded in 1997.
   Chehadé rallied all the leading ICT companies in the world including IBM,
   HP, Microsoft, SAP, Nokia and Oracle to collaborate on B2B standards.
   RosettaNet became the high-technology industry's leading eBusiness
   standards consortium. RosettaNet adopted a multi-stakeholder approach to
   define and standardize a complete inter-company process language, enabling
   the ICT sector to use the Internet for real-time process synchronization
   between thousands of trading partners.
   - *Nett Information Products*, launched in 1987 to create and develop an
   Internet-based content management and sharing solution, successfully
   weaving hundreds of ICT suppliers and thousands of their resellers into a
   powerful collaborative business web of applications and content. Ingram
   Micro the world's largest ICT distributor acquired Nett, where Chehadé
   became vice president of its Customer Information Services Group.

Chehadé is a graduate of Stanford University, where he earned a master's
degree in Engineering Management. He earlier earned a bachelor's degree in
computer science from Polytechnic University in New York, where he
graduated Summa Cum Laude.

Fadi Chehadé is also the founder of Nilorado, a youth organization raising
funds to support schools for handicapped children in Upper Egypt, also
delivering bicycles to boys and girls from needy families in that region
who otherwise cannot reach their schools.

Chehadé lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 25 years. They are the
parents of two adult sons.
