ICANN Confirms Selection of Leading New CEO Candidate, Announcement Expected Next Week

Following rumors last week on the leading candidate for ICANN’s new CEO position, an official announcement has been released by ICANN confirming that the board may indeed announce its selection during its meeting in Sydney next week. From the announcement:

“Following the interviews of the short-listed candidates, the BSC [Board Search Committee] created a smaller shortlist for a further interview by the whole ICANN Board via video conference against the criteria above. The Board has selected a leading candidate, and initial contract discussions are now underway. The intention is that these negotiations will have progressed sufficiently that the candidate will attend the ICANN meeting in Sydney to meet with the Board face-to-face. The Board intends to introduce the lead candidate to other members of the ICANN community during that meeting. The Board expects to be in a position to approve the selection of the new CEO at the Board Meeting on 26 June 2009, during the ICANN Sydney Meeting.”
