Kathryn Brown, former Verizon exec and chief of staff to FCC Chairman Bill Kennard, has been named CEO of the Internet Society.

Brown succeeds Lynn St. Amour starting Jan. 1. Amour announced last February she would be exiting at the completion of her current contract after 15 years with the society.
