The Taiwan Network Information Center Announces New Leadership and Welcomes Jo-fan Yu as the New CEO.
The Taiwan Network Information Center (TWNIC) is excited to announce that Jo-fan Yu has joined the TWNIC as our new Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director. Jo-fan also sits on the board of the TWNIC, reporting to Chairman Kenny Huang.
Jo-fan is a well recognized digital policy and legal expert with proven leadership and record in helping major technology corporations and NGOs to navigate complex challenges at the intersection of technology and national security, supply chain resiliency, and strategic partnership development over the past decades of her successful career in the information technology industry. A government prosecutor-turned policy professional and lawyer, most recently Jo-fan worked for Baker & McKenzie, one of the world’s top law firms. Earlier in her career, Jo-fan was appointed by Silicon Valley’s iconic technology leader Google as the company’s Head of Public Policy for Taiwan and Hong Kong. The appointment of Jo-fan as the new leader of the TWNIC comes at an important timing for our organization as Taiwan has gained more attention and importance on the world stage in the aspect of internet governance, technology, and innovation. Jo-fan’s joining will bring the TWNIC to the next level of influence and partnership and further strengthen TWNIC’s position regionally and globally.
“I’m really proud and excited to welcome Jo-fan Yu to join the TWNIC. Jo-fan has been a long-time supporter and friend of the TWNIC in her previous roles and now Jo-fan can take over the helm and sit in the front row to lead the organization into greater success in the foreseeable future. The board will give Jo-fan full support in the course of our mission to help Taiwan and our users succeed in the space of technology and innovation,” said Kenny Huang, Chairman of the TWNIC, who was also CEO of the TWNIC from 2017 to 2024. “During my long career in the technology industry, I’ve always been a big fan of the TWNIC and its important work to keep Taiwan’s internet free, fast, and secure. With the rapid developments of the technology world, the TWNIC will take on more challenges and I hope I can contribute my own global network and knowledge to work with many friends of the TWNIC for greater success and to make Taiwan proud,” said Jo-fan Yu.
The TWNIC is the unique neutral and non-profit organization that takes charge of the domain name registration and IP address allocation in Taiwan. Besides offering full range network services, the TWNIC participates in various related regional and international conferences, in hopes to provide the best services for network service providers in Taiwan and all its members through public participation and constant improvements, which are the biggest goals of the TWNIC. This year, the TWNIC will also be the co-host of the 2024 Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) in Taipei from August 19 to August 23. It also marks the second time for Taiwan to be the host of APrIGF.
