MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced in a press release the appointment of Alexandra Dans as Communications Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean. Within this role, Dans will be the primary media contact for journalists across the region.

“Alexandra knows the issues surrounding the Internet and she knows the Latin American media,” said Brad White, Director of Global Media Affairs. “Her background and knowledge will make her a valuable asset for journalists who are covering ICANN specifically or on the Internet generally”

Dans, former Communications and Social Media Coordinator with the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC), has a degree in Political Science from the University of Montreal, a Master’s degree in International Communications from the University of Quebec (Canada) and is fluent in Spanish, French and English with basic knowledge of Portuguese. She will be based at the ICANN Engagement Center in Montevideo, Uruguay in the “Casa de Internet” of Latin America and the Caribbean.

“My first priority is to assist media who may be interested in reporting on the ICANN meeting in Buenos Aires in November and to generate interest among those unfamiliar with ICANN,” said Dans. “This will be an important meeting not just for ICANN but for the entire region and particularly for Latin American journalists who cover the Internet.”

ICANN is committed to adding communications representatives in each of its global regions as it continues efforts to internationalize its operations.
