Vikram Kumar resigns from InternetNZ
Posted on 8-Jan-2013 09:51 | Tags Filed under: News



InternetNZ Chief Executive Vikram Kumar announced today that he has resigned effective 31 January 2013, after three years of leading the organisation through a period of major transformation.

"Vikram has been responsible for making InternetNZ the go-to organisation for authoritative information about the Internet in New Zealand," says President Frank March on behalf of the InternetNZ Council.

"In addition to increasing the visibility and reach of the organisation through initiatives such as NetHui, he has built a strong team which will serve the organisation well in the future. He has also cemented excellent relationships with government and NGOs, as well as contributed to partnerships that have enabled a wide range of public good initiatives, such as NetSafe, the 2020 Communications Trust, and the rebuilding of Christchurch's IT infrastructure. All of this was done while InternetNZ membership has doubled in the last three years."

“Vikram has put great effort into increasing collaboration and engagement with wider civil society to ensure that the Internet remains open and uncaptureable and remains a resource that is available to and benefits all New Zealanders. He set up the NetHui initiative, holding open conferences to discuss and influence the shape and direction of the Internet. Well over a thousand people have attended NetHui, and learned from and contributed to the conversation.”

InternetNZ is the open membership society responsible for the management of the .nz domain name space and representing New Zealand in international fora related to Internet infrastructure.

InternetNZ will begin a search for a replacement immediately, says March.
