Internet Commerce Association Selects Kamila Sekiewicz as New Executive Director and Fills 3 Open Seats on the Board

The Internet Commerce Association (ICA) - the non-profit trade organization that protects the rights of domain name investors, website developers and related companies - has announced the appointment of a new Executive Director and election results that filled three open board seats.  In a letter to members the ICA announced that Kamila Sekiewicz, who has been serving as the organization's Operations Manager, has been promoted to Executive Director. Board member Daniel Law has been serving as Interim Executive Director while the ICA sought the right person for the full-time role - one they found in-house in the highly regarded Ms. Sekiewicz.

At the same time, the ICA conducted elections to fill three board seats that each come with a 2-year term (two other seats were filled last year with the election of Zak Muscovitch and Jay Chapman. They, along with Jeremiah Johnston (Sedo.com) complete the six-member board). In this year's election, members selected Law to one seat, paving the way for him to reassume the role he had on the board before agreeing to temporarily fill in as Executive Director. Another went to Nat

Cohen, who ran for re-election. Nat is a pioneering domain investor who has been a long time champion of the ICA. New board member Bob Mountain, the Chief Revenue Officer at Afternic, completed the newly elected trio- one that works hand in hand with ICA Legal Counsel Phil Corwin who has done a remarkable job in a position he has held ever since the ICA was founded 11 years ago.

Ms. Sekiewicz noted, "Since I joined the team, the ICA has undergone a number of developments, including the addition of individual memberships, Board expansion and the reinstitution of an Executive Director position. These changes resulted in nearly doubling our member base, increased member involvement and broadening the scope of issues we address. Thanks to the strong member base and Board and Phil Corwin’s continued advocacy, we are now in an excellent position as we gear up for our largest advocacy effort yet in the push for UDRP reform."

Kamila added. "In my role as ICA’s Executive Director, I hope to contribute to ICA’s further growth. My hope is that an ICA membership becomes a natural step for anyone with a stake in the domain name industry: be it private domain investors, domain brokers, registrars, registries or monetization companies. We already have an excellent membership base but to continue our work, we will need continued, elevated industry support and involvement. I look forward to the new role within an association that gives the domain name industry the legitimacy it deserves and a voice to those whose livelihoods it provides."
