Loic Damilaville writes to report:

CENTR is the Council of European National Top Level Domain Registries, gathering more than 50 registries such as DENIC for Germany (.de), Nominet for the United Kingdom (.uk) or Switch for Switzerland (.ch).

The election took place during CENTR’s General Assembly held in Warsaw on February 25 and 26.

Mathieu Weill, AFNIC’s CEO, replaces Andrzej Bartosiewicz, from the Polish registry, NASK, whose term was coming to an end. The other CENTR Board members are:

- Sabine Dolderer, DENIC (.de)

- Alberto PĂ©rez Gomez, Red.es (.es)

- Annebeth Lange (.no)

- Juhani Juselius (.fi), Treasurer

Mathieu Weill declared: “CENTR is a platform for exchange of information and best practices among members, but it is also a lively community, working in the public’s interest. I will work both to enhance services provided by CENTR to its members and to raise our industry’s profile”.

Mathieu Weill joined AFNIC in 2005 after serving the French Ministry of Industry and Telecoms in various positions.
