ICANN is pleased to announce that Dr. Williams will be providing
consultancy services in the area of policy development. In this regard,
Dr. Williams will act as Senior Policy Advisor providing advice to Olof
Nordling, Manager Policy Development Coordination. The Senior Advisory
role is a full-time, temporary position intended to bridge the time
necessary to hire and install the new Vice President, Policy Development

associated with the new position and the transition, it is anticipated
that Dr. Williams appointment will extend for nine to twelve months. Dr.
Williams is expected to begin work on
1 July and attend the upcoming ICANN meeting in Luxembourg.

Dr. Williams brings long term experience in the ICANN environment across
the ccTLD, registry and registrar constituencies. She is a former .auDA

strengthening. She has a doctorate in information technology and law on
the globalisation of regulation and the domain name system and a masters
