The Internet Association of Australia has appointed telecommunications and IT industry veteran Narelle Clark as CEO.

Clark takes the top role with the association with a career across the Internet and telecommunications industry both within Australia and internationally, having held senior roles in a range of service providers, not-for profit organisations and policy and standards working groups.

Clark held senior industry roles with the CSIRO, Optus, the Public Interest Registry (operator of .Org), and the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN), and consulted to Telecom New Zealand, government departments and telecommunications and content providers.

“Internet exchanges are proven to be a vital part of a reliable, affordable internet, so I am absolutely thrilled to take on this position” said Clark.

“IAA’s infrastructure is second to none, with the widest number of points of presence, the most extensive content arrangements and a member base that spans all parts of Australia’s Internet. Without the collaboration between builders, content and service providers Australians would not have enjoyed the level of Internet performance during lockdown we have seen.”

“After an exhaustive search, the Board determined that Narelle’s combination of deep internet expertise, all-round industry knowledge and drive will enable the Association to move to the next level”, David Hooton, Chair of Internet Australia said.

“The high regard with which Narelle is held across the industry means our internet exchange operations will continue to grow and deliver across Australia and New Zealand, while we increase our work in member services and the Internet policy arena.”
