LACTLD has announced that the appointment of Andrés Piazza as General Manager. Piazza will take up the post formally from April 1st 2016. He will be working alongside the current General Manage, Carolina Aguerre, from mid-March.
Piazza is a well known figure in the Latin American and Spanish speaking internet industry. He’s been with LACNIC since 2011, but prior to that was on the advisory board of .mobi.
Here’s the official announcement:
The Board of LACTLD is pleased to announce the designation of Andrés Piazza as the new General Manager of this organization. Andrés will join us in mid-March to initiate a process of transition with Carolina Aguerre, whose term ends on 31 March and he will formally assume on 1 April 2016.
Andrés holds a law degree from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina and has a decade long trajectory in the management and coordination of Internet related issues. It is worth highlighting his experience at the ICANN environment when he was President of LACRALO between 2009-2011, afterwards assuming the position he currently has at LACNIC as Leader of Strategic Relations and Internet Governance.
We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate our thanks to Carolina and wish her an excellent future and to welcome Andrés to this community.
