Fadi Chehadé, the chief executive of ICANN, has been handed a senior advisory role at the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Chehadé will take on the role of senior advisor to the executive chairman at the WEF, the organisation revealed today, January 22.

In May last year TBO reported that Chehadé would be stepping down but would be staying on the board of directors until a suitable replacement was found. He joined ICANN in 2012.

In his new role Chehadé will contribute to the WEF’s Future of the Internet initiative which aims to help strengthen trust in the digital world. He will take up his new role April 1, 2016.

Chehadé said: “I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the WEF’s work and I am deeply committed to doing everything I can to help ensure a trusted digital world, advancing global economic development and social progress for all.”
