Ondřej Filip has been elected a board member of the European Internet Registry Administrator

Ondřej Filip, the CEO of CZ.NIC and the Director of the Board of the NIX.CZ association, has been elected a management member of the RIPE NCC organization that governs blocks of IP addresses for Europe, the Near East and a part of Asia. Ondřej Filip’s appointment as a manager of such an important organization means appreciation of his work in the field of Internet domains, networks and technologies. The function that Ondřej Filip will hold for three years in the RIPE NCC is honorary and unpaid.

“I am much honored to be chosen for such a prestigious position by members of an organization as important as RIPE NCC. I perceive my appointment as an award not only for the Czech Internet community, but also for the two associations I represent. For both CZ.NIC and NIX.CZ, it is a confirmation of their reputation as important organizations that take care of the development of the Internet infrastructure worldwide,” said Ondřej Filip.

RIPE NCC was founded in 1992 as an independent, nonprofit membership organization that supports Internet infrastructure. RIPE NCC is primarily a regional Internet registry (RIR) that provides services to more than 22,000 members, primarily Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and telecommunication organizations.
