Appointment of an Interim CEO for AFRINIC

31 December 2014 - The AFRINIC Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Patrisse Deesse as the Interim Chief Executive Officer of AFRINIC.

Patrisse joined AFRINIC in September 2007 as Finance and Administration Manager. He has been involved in all aspects of the organisation including Finance, Human Resources and Administration. He worked on and implemented several projects relating to Billing and set up of the financial processes and procedures.

Prior to working at AFRINIC, his previous work experience extends over 30 years at a large international conglomerate in Malawi (one of the largest private companies in the country) in accounting, occupying several senior managerial positions, including Head Office Accountant and Treasury Manager. He is exposed to international management practices and standards in a multicultural environment. He is a Fellow member of an International Accounting body.

Until his appointment, Patrisse was the Finance and Accounts Director of AFRINIC. In his new role, he will lead the AFRINIC team, pending the appointment and resumption of the substantive Chief Executive.

The process of recruiting the Chief Executive Officer has entered the candidates evaluation phase. The Board is pleased with the progress made so far.
