In a message sent to a number of Internet community email lists on June 28, ICANN Board member George Sadowsky confirmed the formation of a search committee for the person set to replace current ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé, whom a few weeks ago announced his intention to leave.

“We’ve opened an e-mail address for interested parties, ceo-search-cmte-only@icann.org, in order to collect comments regarding the search, the qualifications of candidates, the job description, and the special characteristics of best applicants,” Sadowsky wrote in his email. “It’s open until July 12, 2015. Please feel free to contribute your views. You should also have no hesitation in spreading the word about the search and suggest strong candidates for consideration when the job specifics are available.”
