Kim Davies

In this role he leads the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions, which coordinates and manages the Internet's unique identifiers to promote Internet interoperability. His tenure has evolved IANA through the implementation of technical systems, formalising business processes and quality management practices, and transitioning the functions from a US Government contract to multi-stakeholder oversight.
