Corporate Representatives

Matthew Enger, X Integration Pty Ltd
Nomination Statement: The Internet Association of Australia provides valuable services to small/medium business as well as the wider internet community through its peering services as well as its growing work in representing the interests of its stakeholders on internet matters and a growing voice in the internet community.

I joined the board a month ago filling a casual vacancy and I would like to continue that role if the membership agrees. I bring a wide range of skills from small business (i am currently running a small ISP called LeapTel as well as a wholesale ISP X Integration) so i am able to bring experience as well as a voice representing what small providers need and want from the association. I also have long standing community service and not for profit experience through my current role in Scouts Victoria which helps me with working in teams and achieving goals on small budgets.

Seconded by: Matthew Moyle-Croft
I support Matthew Enger’s nomination for the IAA board – his engagement as a replacement board member has been excellent and his efforts have helped the IAA deliver more for members and I believe he makes an excellent person to remain on the board.

Daryl Collins, Akamai Technologies
Nomination Statement: I have been on the IAA Board for the past two years. I am renominating so I can continue my contributions to the association’s work in the Australian Internet Industry.

I am part of the global Network Architecture team at Akamai Technologies based out of Adelaide. My key interests are in Internet interconnection and routing. I have worked in the Internet industry for over 20 years. Prior to Akamai, I spent 15 years at Internode, leading the network teams and later focusing on Network Architecture at Internode and subsequently iiNet.

I believe my working knowledge from both the Australian ISP and Global Content industry perspective combined with my experience in Internode’s management team enables me to make a valuable contribution to IAA.

Seconded by: John Alexander
Daryl is an enthusiastic member of the internet community both in Australia and overseas for over 20 years. He has a great insight into the workings of the internet and would be a great contributor and representative of IAA members and would continue to be a valued member of the committee for IAA.

Professional Representatives

Craig Askings
Nomination Statement: As someone who has been part of the internet industry in Australia for the last twenty years, I believe I can bring a perspective to the board that covers both professional and corporate members.

Running an internet exchange while at PIPE Networks, as well as acting as the client of internet exchanges across several jobs and clients since then, gives me an understanding of both sides of an important service the Internet Association of Australia supplies to its members.

Since becoming a consultant, I have helped ISPs, Server Hosts and other Internet dependent companies understand the value of the IAA and encouraging them to becoming members; bringing them value through peering and increasing the value of IX-AU to the existing peers.

If I am elected to the board, I believe I can ensure professional members get represented when the Internet Association of Australia is promoting the internet industry as a whole.

Seconded by: Paul Mula
Craig was instrumental in us finding out about the IAA and becoming a member of this Association. The Peering service has been important to scaling our network capacity.
