Modest pay rises for ICANN top brass

ICANN’s six top executives have been given pay raises up to 3.5%, according to resolutions passed at ICANN 78 last week.

The increases are a little ahead of US inflation but a little below the market rate if these officers were to work elsewhere, according to the resolutions.

Interestingly, interim CEO Sally Costerton is named in a pay-rise resolution for the first time, perhaps indicating she’s no longer being paid through the UK-based consulting company she owns, which has allowed ICANN to hide her compensation in its annual tax filings.

The resolution raises her “salary” by up to 3.5% for her role as senior advisor to president and SVP, Global Stakeholder Engagement, but does not mention the fact that she’s also acting CEO.
