President and CEO FY17 SR2 At-Risk Compensation


Resolution of the ICANN Board
Meeting Date: 
Thu, 29 Jun 2017
Resolution Number: 
2017.06.29.05
Resolution Text: 

Whereas, each Board member has confirmed that he/she does not have a conflict of interest with respect to establishing the amount of payment for the President and CEO's FY17 SR2 at-risk compensation payment.

Whereas, the Compensation Committee recommended that the Board approve payment to the President and CEO for his FY17 SR2 at-risk compensation component.

Resolved (2017.06.29.05), the Board hereby approves a payment to the President and CEO for his FY17 SR2 at-risk compensation component.

Rationale for Resolution: 

When the President and CEO was hired, he was offered a base salary, plus an at-risk component of his compensation package. This same structure exists today. Consistent with all ICANN staff members, the President and CEO is to be evaluated against specific goals.

After the conclusion of FY17 SR2, the President and CEO provided to the Compensation Committee his self-assessment of his performance for FY17 SR2. After they reviewed and considered that self-assessment, the Compensation Committee recommended that the Board approve the President and CEO's at-risk compensation for the second scoring period of FY17 (16 November 2016 through 15 May 2017), and the Board agrees with that recommendation.

While this will have a fiscal impact on ICANN, it is an impact that was contemplated in the FY17 budget. This decision will not have an impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the domain name system.
