IIA names Peter Lee as new CEO

Lee previously worked on regulatory matters for TransACT Communications.

The Internet Industry Association (IIA) has named Peter Lee as its new CEO. The IIA had been without a CEO since Peter Coroneos retired in June last year.

The IIA originally hired Steve Burrell to replace Coroneos, but Burrell quit a few days before his September start date. The association chose Anne Hurley to step in as interim CEO.

Lee will be tasked with executing “the strategic vision and objectives of the Board as we begin the next phase of the IIA’s journey with a more contemporary focus, firmly fixed on matters relating to the Digital Economy and Productivity, eCommerce and the issues most important and relevant to our members,” IIA said.

“Given the continued growth, development and evolution of the Internet in Australia, the IIA Board recognised that a significant evolution of the organisation was also necessary in order to remain relevant to our members and maintain our momentum,” IIA chairman, Bruce Linn, said in a statement.

Lee was previously general manager of strategy, wholesale and regulatory for TransACT Communications. He’s weighed in regulatory matters including telecom market rules, online content delivery, media convergence and the NBN.

Lee said in a statement that he looks forward “to the many challenges and opportunities presented by the continued growth, development and evolution of our industry.

“The rapid transition to the delivery of media by digital means, the accelerating expansion of online retailing, the social and policy changes associated with social media, multiple devices and cloud computing, as well as access to services not regulated in Australia each create significant challenges requiring the industry to have an active voice.”
