USCIB has announced the appointment of Mastercard Fellow JoAnn Stonier as the new chair of the USCIB ICT Policy Committee, effective October 1. Current Committee chair Ellen Blackler (Disney) will be stepping down from the chairmanship on September 29. Blackler will remain a member of the ICT policy committee.
“We’d like to express our gratitude to Ellen for five outstanding years of leadership, during which she led the committee through many challenging issue areas,” said USCIB Vice President for ICT Policy Barbara Wanner. “Concurrently, we’re delighted that JoAnn will take on the important role of driving the committee’s ongoing work and strategy.”
According to Wanner, Stonier has been involved in the Committee’s work for many years and, through USCIB’s affiliation with Business at OECD (BIAC), has made impressive contributions to the OECD’s privacy and data governance work. She also participated in the recent Metaverse Roundtables in May and June 2023, which were organized by BIAC and The USCIB Foundation.
