Adiel Akplogan to Join ICANN as VP of Technical Engagement
Role aimed at strengthening ties to the technical community

4 February 2015

Veteran Internet technology expert Adiel Akplogan is joining ICANN in the
newly created role of Vice President for Technical Engagement.

Akplogan served most recently as the Chief Executive Officer of AfriNIC, the
Internet Numbers' Resource Registry for Africa, a position he has held since

"I'm delighted to welcome Adiel to ICANN," said Sally Costerton, Special
Advisor to the President for Global Stakeholder Engagement. "He is a highly
respected contributor to the Internet community and his experienced
leadership will reinforce and deepen ICANN's long term participation in the
technical community of which it is a critical part."

Akplogan is among the original Internet pioneers in West Africa, where he
has played a critical role in setting up and managing CAFENet, one of the
first private Internet Service Providers in the region.

"It's my sincere hope that I can help ICANN achieve the high level of
operational excellence that it is aiming for," said Adiel. "We are all
striving to maintain and improve a global communication and information
system that will define our future on multiple levels."

In his new position, Akplogan will help ICANN conduct technical engagement
and outreach. He will also provide some valuable links to the ICT community
on the African continent, since he was instrumental in establishing several
technical coordination bodies such as the African Network Operators Group
(AfNOG), the African ccTLD Managers Association (AfTLD), AfricaCERT and the
Africa Internet Summit (AIS).

Akplogan will be based in Montreal, Canada and will assume his new position
on March 1.
