New ICANN Chief Delighted to Head "Most Complex Organisation"

ICANN logoIn an open letter to the domain name constituency, new ICANN CEO and President Rod Beckstrom has expressed his delight at commencing the new position but also saying it is “without doubt … the most complex organisation” he has ever come across.
Beckstrom says this is “necessarily, at least in part, because we must navigate through a sea of stakeholder groups, some of which have been formalized in our bylaws, and all of which have an interest in global Internet names, addressing and parameters.”
Beckstrom also notes the key areas on which ICANN is working. These are internationalised domain names (IDNs), DNSSEC and new gTLDs.
