WACREN Chair – Prof. Quaynor Bows Out; New Chair In

WACREN announces that after close to 10 years of service to the regional research and education network, our Board Chair – Professor Nii Narku Quaynor, has bowed out for the next chapter of his life.  

His infectious drive for expanding the Internet and love for research and education propelled him to accept the Board Chair's office in WACREN's formative years. During his stint as the Chair, Prof. Quaynor led the Board to set the organisation on a solid growth path.

His wisdom, in-depth knowledge and wealth of experience in networking technology and community-driven organisation have left an indelible impression on WACREN and the entire Internet ecosystem in Africa.
