Anne-Rachel Inne to Leave ICANN on 30 September

Along with ICANN’s management team, I’d like to share the news that Anne-Rachel Inne, VP for Government Engagement, is leaving ICANN effective 30 September 2017. Anne-Rachel has been with ICANN in a variety of roles for 11 years, excluding her brief leave from 2012 to July 2014.

Anne-Rachel has contributed tirelessly to ICANN and the Internet community over the years, continuously giving her highest level of commitment and service. For the past three years, she has worked for the Government and Intergovernmental Organization (IGO) Engagement Department – first out of the Geneva office, then more recently out of Washington, D.C. Her work has focused on the missions of U.N. organizations and IGOs in Geneva, particularly those from developing economies.

In her earlier years at ICANN, Anne-Rachel contributed to building up the organization in the Los Angeles office. There, she served in various capacities – policy, Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), processes, and global partnerships in support of constituencies. Later, in the ICANN Brussels office, as Manager of Regional Relations for Africa for ICANN, she was instrumental in our first steps toward becoming a global organization.

On behalf of the Government Engagement team, I thank Anne-Rachel for her many contributions and steadfast dedication to ICANN over the years. Anne-Rachel’s departure is a clear loss to ICANN and the community, but we wish her all the best in her new endeavors.
